    Hi, everyone~

    I need everyone's suggestion about my computer.... I am going to
    assemble a new set of computer for architecture 3D and AutoCAD.....
    not for game. My idea is as following~

    Intel P4 2.4G <=== prefer FSB800 unless I have to use P4PE, then I
    have to pick FSB533. I should buy the fan for the CPU, too right?
    Which kind?

    Asus P4P800 (P4P800 VM? any different?) or <==== I checked this one
    is very picky on the RAM and VGA Card, specially the ram from
    Gigabyte 8IPE 1000 Pro or <===== not a lot of people have comments
    on this one
    Asus P4PE <===== this one will be my last choice since the other two
    above have better future for upgrading....... am I right?

    DDRAM400 256MBX2 or 512MB, TwinMOS, Kingston, Corsair or Samsung?

    Graphics Card:
    Nvida GeForce 4 Ti 4200 or
    ATI Radeon 9500 pro this one is great, but expensive >_<....... worthy
    for spending this kind of money?

    80G WD or Maxtor?

    LiteOn LTR-52246S 52R 52W 24RW or
    PlexWriter 48/24/48A

    Case no idea~

    System stablility is my first piority since I don't know hardware that
    well..... :p I have tried my best to search all kinds of
    information..... sometimes I am wondering if I should take the future
    upgrading possibility as the part of the consideration. Technology
    is changing everyday!!!

    Thank you! All kinds of suggestions are welcome!

    Well, b4 I bought P4P800DX, I also thought of Gigabyte 8IPE1000Pro if I was
    going to get a non-RAID mb.

    IMHO, P4P800 (non-DX) and Gigabyte 8IPE1000Pro are similar in terms of
    function. But i think if you are going to overclock P4P800 is better than
    8IPE1000Pro. I am not sure, but for 8IPE1000Pro you can use IrDA but P4P800

    Both of them can their own technology to avoid problems in flashing bios.

    I think 8IPE1000Pro is cheaper than P4P800 in your place?
