Working on a new build, aiming for 1200 dollars but give or take a few hundred. I'm not asking for recommendations on changing the parts, just if all the parts are compatible with one another because of a past mishap I had with the power supply and the motherboard and it resulted in some bothersome RMA-ing.

Does it make a difference if I'm using x64 or not? Someone told me it can make a difference according to the CPU but someone else told me there's no difference and no change or anything. So... What?

That is a lot of windows\tab to open. Could you just type in a summery of the parts.

I would but the real problem with that is that I can't type the exact specs and the problems I'm looking for are really specific such as whether the PSU has enough power for the motherboard and whether the graphics card needs extra power from the PSU (meaning it needs a 12v thing) and really in-depth stuff because last time the problem ended up being that the motherboard couldn't support a CPU that had dual-core and the motherboard couldn't support a PSU that didn't have exactly 12v so I had to return it for one that could support a 24-pin power connector and a 12v x2 CPU.

Also, that is the longest run-on sentence I've ever typed in my entire life.

It looks good to me, but I was wondering why you picked DDR2 667 ram over DDR2 800. Your motherboard says DDR2 800 but I suppose 667 would work.

Snap.
Good point, I'm gonna go with 800 just to be on the safe side. I HATE RMA'ing stuff because it's like you have all the parts for a perfectly good computer but you just can't use it yet. I sat around with my pimpin' computer parts for about 3 weeks before I could actually get it working. I died a little bit on the inside during those 3 weeks.

I'll switch that to...

Also is Patriot a good RAM supplier? I know a lot of people who are really picky about RAM, and I myself have really only tried Kingston (which was actually okay) and Corsair (which I like the best for making really cool, literally and for looks, RAM sticks).

Also, adding this monitor because my other computer has it and it was an upgrade from a 15" CRT monitor so it was a MAJOR improvement and I haven't noted a single problem with it yet, no missing pixels, no black lines down the screen (as some people reported). I think NewEgg has a lot of viral marketing going on via their (rather dumb) anonymous reviewing system.

I'm in the shopping stage myself,but have not yet pulled the trigger.

A previous poster mentioned all the windows to open,but there is a shortcut.

Go the the newegg "wish list" link,put it there,and then simply supply one link here.

On a related subject,I comparison shopped Tiger Direct,Computer Geeks,and Newegg,and including shipping to me,Newegg seems to have the best prices on everything-except monitors,where Tiger has the lead,if you are willing to go through the rebate process.

(*smile* I apologize for that last sentence.)

No you can't put the wishlist link without it first being shared, so I need to wait for it to become shared since it usually takes like 24 hours for some stupid reason. Otherwise I'd just post that, but for now the separate parts will have to suffice.
