So what Mobo should I use with this processor? And could you give me a brief overview of "dual channel", and why all Mobo's don't have it?

Also, is the 8x NEC or whatever, a speaker set?

Also, what is wrong with the case? Wouldn't it be easier to get an Antec case with an Antec power supply... ? Why the P160 over the case I have listed? Keep in mind this is my first build... wanting to keep it as simple as possible.

So is a 430w power supply going to be sufficient for my gaming needs?

So the NEC is a DVD rewriter?  Not really interested in one, I think I'd rather get speakers.

How do I even know if a mobo is dual channel?  Where is that listed on newegg?

Is the sound card really necessary? 

If you see ways to reduce system price w/o signifigantly hurting system quality, let me know, I'm not Richie Rich.  :grin:

Not so much that, but the fact that I was going to trade something with you. Your volatile and ungrateful attitude made me think otherwise when dealing with people such as yourself.

No, you weren't gonna trade shit with ME. You seem to think beause you have a used case to SELL that I am going to be interested? Get real. I'm not buying your dusty ass case, and you aren't getting a 5 rating from me. Haughty bitch.

daba's thermaltake case is beautiful, and I would recommend it to anybody. daba is also one of the most reliable traders on the shroomery, and If you dont want something just say I dont want it.

I would dump that AMD, too much $$$ for too little performace. You can get a Intel 3.0c (northwood core) for a bit cheaper, and its a MUCH better chip.
