I usually end up passing my old components down to family members rotating by who has the oldest components. Well in this case I can't really do that. My old motherboard is a KT6V-LSR Socket A and Full size ATX so it won't fit in a MicroATX MPC case along with this I'm not going to go out and purchase a MicroATX socket A motherboard just to have an outdated worthless socket A motherboard lieing around.

So, I'm doing things a bit different and passing my old equipment to another family member and just building a brand mew system for my father. He lives in a Fifth Wheel so space is a premium which is why I'm looking at 19" LCD's for him after I get mine.

Currently though he does need a new system badly so I am starting to spec things out as he can continue to use his 17" Micron Monitor.

This is what I have so far:
Keep in mind I'm not made of money and I'm trying to do a nice system for him on a budget of under $700.00.

RS482M4-ILD Motherboard

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Core

Seagate 80GB 7200 RPM Baracuda SATA 150 Drive

Lite-On SHM-165H6S DVD-Burner

Crucial 1GB (2x512MB) DDR Dual Channel Kit

Logitech Cordless Comfort Duo Black RF Wireless

I would like a TV@nywhere Duo although I can't find anywhere to buy them in the US. Sad An equivalent card that can support both Analog and Digital would be nice w/ Remote.

Past that where I'm at is I can't decide on a case. I want a small case, a Front LED is something I would really like to have for him, but I'm not sure it's feasible. If not I would like 2 external 5 1/4" Drive bays so I can add a VCR Drive. And yes I know they make them, but I lost my bookmark. Sad Now I have to spend hours trying to find the words I typed in that brought it up in google and hours searching to find the right link. Maybe someone knows who made these drives???
