    You should consider getting 32 bit vista, incase some of your hardware doesnt have drivers for it

    Why get a 15" monitor?
    Didn't you get a 8800GT? I'd at least get 20" widescreen one.

    15" is just too tiny...

    Can you even buy 15" monitors any more?

    I'd switch the Abit board for a Gigabyte. Had nothing but trouble from Abit boards.

    Gigabyte P35T-DS4 would be my first choice.

    I think that that list in his post is stuff he already has that he will use on his new computer.


    But you should buy a monitor that is at least 19" widescreen. USe the 15" as a second monitor or just sell it.


    [edit] and if you're low on money, don't buy Vista and just pirate an OEM disk. I have Vista Ultimate 64bit OEM and I never had to use any cracks or CD keys, everything installs fine. I just installed Service Pack 1 (downloaded automatically by Microsoft) with no issues.

    Bad choice in motherboard the P35 is dated now, I recommend a P45 series, they are cheaper and are great for over clocking, Asus P5Q is probably the best especially considering its low price.

    And for memory I would recommend OCZ Reaper HPC, brilliant memory.

    I've not had a chance to check out the P45 boards yet. We had a guy from Gigabyte in at work today and he said we should check out their up coming range of P45 boards as the P35's are gonna start disappearing.

    whats wrong with abit?

    I currently use the 15", it is small, but it works. will get a new monitor after I build it and sell the old monitor. I have plenty of time to make changes and hunt. just ordered the HD202 and the G11 keyboard a couple of minutes ago.
