1st Build/ 1st AMD
Pros: Wow...Had this setup for about a month now. Runs quiet and very fast compared to my old Intel P4 2.5GHz. Easily OC to 2.4GHz with stock heat sink and fan. Runs 29.5C idle and has yet to get above 39.5C under full load. Very impressed and will continue to purhase AMD in the future. Great for gaming. Bought everything from newegg. Arrived on time and had it up and running within an hour. Thanks NEWEGG!!!!
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: This CPU ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 mobo 1GB (2x512)Corsair VS RAM PC3200 Sapphire Radeon 9600XT 256 AGP (for now) Western Digital 74GB Raptor HD (10,000RPM) CoolerMaster CAV-T03 ATX case CoolerMaster 430W PS Windows XP Pro
Pros: First build for me. Didn't want to give up my AGP I just bought two months ago. This mobo allows me to use the AGP until I decide to fork over the $ for a PCIE. Got everything from newegg and had it up and running within an hour. Decent manual for a first time builder like me. Had this setup for about a month now and have had zero problems. Allowed minor OC for my AMD 64 3200+ Venice (2.4GHz stable). Doesn't appear to be a great OC'er but for someone wanting to learn the process, it has decent capabilities.
Cons: None so far.

Comments: To the guy with the HP who still hasn't decided....Buy this card. I put it in my HP 753C that had a 200W PS. It lagged a little so I bought a Cooler Master 400W PS (from Newegg of course) and all is well. You will not be disappointed with this card. I can play BF2 now with very little to no lag. Great card and great service from Newegg as always. Probably going to build my own puter soon and will transfer this card into the new one until I can upgrade to a PCI-Express card.
