This is my first attempt. I'm trying to keep the cost under $300 recycling the 2xIDE hd's, optical drives, flopy drive, winxp5.1 build 2600, viewsonic dvi monitor and ATX case.

This is what I have for the upgrade:

CPU: Phenom II X3 710
http://www.newegg.com/Product/...?Item=N82E16820134488

Mobo: Biostar TA790GX XE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/...?Item=N82E16813138140

PSU: Corsair CMPSU-0400CX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/...?Item=N82E16817139008

RAM:Corsair 2 x 2GB DDR2800
http://www.newegg.com/Product/...?Item=N82E16820145184

This is a multi-use home pc.

I'd sure appreciate any suggestions for improvements or compatibility issues.

Looks good and that motherboard is getting great success in unlocking the 4th core on X3s so you may get a bonus hehe
