My New Computer

Well, this is my first post on my blog, had it months, but never really had anything interesting to put. This is more of a plea than something interesting, a plea to any of those computery people out there, who know this about building one from scratch:

Description Quantity Item Price Item Total
Intel Pentium4 3200 EM64T 2M 1 £159.99 £159.99

ASRock Skt 775 AGP/PCIX M/B 1 £51.99 £51.99
Silver ATX Midi TowerCase 2815 1 £23.99 £23.99
400W Single Fan ATX PSU 1 £13.99 £13.99
Maxtor 160GB SATA HDD 1 £58.99 £58.99
Club Geforce 6600 256MB PCIX 1 £84.99 £84.99

OEM 256MB DDR400 Memory 2 £17.99 £35.98

Samsung TS-H552 16xDVDRW OEM 1 £29.99 £29.99

Microsoft Windows XP Pro 1 £99.00 £99.00
Pentium4 Socket 775 H/S&Fan 1 £9.99 £9.99

Something like that, i canna be arsed to play with the alignment. but yea, i can build it, put it all together, thats easy. its the part of working out what will work best, comprimises and the like. This is a huge uni, there must be 100s of people with the knowledge to help. If you know any good websites, or any tips that will work well.

I will be using the computer mainly for listening to music, multitasking web browsing, burning, watching videos, stuff like that. I will play games, but it wont be the primary use.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Andy.
