OK been mulling over suggestions, going to get the parts this week but want to make sure their isn't anything I'm over looking.
Meaning for Phase 2, the POST phase i need
for CPU i'm thinking
E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz
ASUS P5Q SE/R
COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS-500-PCAR-A3 500W
now does anyone see any conflict with the parts i will be getting in in phase 3 and 4 (i only have general ideas not specifics for those stages)
A modern video card x1 (it only has to meet or beat a 6 year old one so expectations are low, probably around $150)
a DVD burner
a multi card reader
4 hard drives at 320+ GB each (the Old Man has 3 x250)
Prefer to have the OS on some flavor of Raptor but the rest are storage.
