getting a new case with an ABIT KN9 SLI NVIDIA Socket AM2 (940) ATX Motherboard, AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ 2.80GHz Socket AM2 OEM Processor, and 4 GB 2048MB Dual Channel PC5400 DDR2 667MHz Ram. the case has a 600 watt power supply, 2 internal fans plus one CPU air duct, USB 2.0 and Firewire. my old system is a 7 year old HP and has seen better days, especially when it continues to LOCK UP ON ME whenever i am trying to do something important, which causes me to have to shut down the system and pretty much lose whatever it was that i was working on. i'm keeping my 2 HDs, floppy, CD and DVD drives and just throwing them on the system. hope it works after i get my hands on it!!!
