Well since my first setup for a client of mine went so well he's recommended me to someone else who wants a new PC, but before I order the parts I have a few questions. He will be using the PC mostly for office work and internet browsing, but once in a while he enjoys some light gaming, as well as using it for some video editing. What I have so far: ================================================================= A455-2114 :: Asus A8V-E Deluxe Via Socket 939 ATX Motherboard / Audio / PCI Express / Wireless & Gigabit LAN / USB 2.0 & Firewire / Serial ATA (3.5 lbs) $188.99 CP1-A64-30009 E :: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ / 512KB Cache / 2000MHz FSB / Socket 939 / Venice Core / Processor with Fan (1 lbs) $215.99 T925-2076 :: Thermaltake Black Soprano AXT Mid-Tower Case with Clear Side, Front USB, Firewire and Audio Ports and 430-Watt Power Supply (22 lbs) $128.99 C13-4911 :: Corsair Value Select Dual Channel 1024MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz Memory ( 2 x 512MB ) (0.5 lbs) $159.99 N27-1878 :: NEC ND3540A / 16x8x16x DVD+RW / 16x6x16x DVD-RW / 8x DVD+R DL / 4x DVD-R DL / 48x32x48x CD-RW / Black / Dual Layer / OEM DVD Burner with Nero Software (4 lbs) $59.99 L12-1052 :: Lite-on SOHD-16P9S / 16x DVD-ROM / 48x CD-ROM / Black / Internal / Drive (3 lbs) $32.99 TSD-80AS3 :: Seagate / 80GB / 7200 / 8MB / SATA-150 / OEM / Hard Drive with NCQ (1 lbs) $91.99 M95-3010 :: Micro Innovations Internet Desktop Duo Keyboard and Wireless Mouse Combo (3 lbs) $33.99 A162-2082 :: Altec VS-3151 6PC Multimedia Home Theater Speaker System - White (30 lbs) $67.99 E145-5108 :: eVGA GeForce 6600 / 256MB DDR / PCI Express / VGA / DVI / TV Out / Video Card (1 lbs) $55.99 M17-5635 :: Microsoft Windows XP Home Upgrade Serv. Pack 2 (1 lbs) $133.99 ================== Subtotal: $1,270.89 Shipping: $73.08 Tax: $201.60 Total: $1,545.57 ================== My questions are; 1) What can I do to bring the price down (because it's in canadian the price differs greatly from a newegg setup) but not compromise perfomance too greatly? My client would rather not end up spending more than $1,300 CAD if he could. 2) Is the Asus A8V-E's onboard audio powerful enough to use the speakers I chose to the best of their abilities? 3) Is the power supply that comes with the case powerful enough to keep this setup running smoothly, or should opt for a different case and power supply completely? 4) What else should I throw in to keep this PC running cool, or is the fans included with everything enough? Any other suggestions would also be greatly appreciated.
