the sempron 3300+ 90nm seems tempting.. but only 32bit lol. it'll be interesting to see what happens when i'm ready to buy around October. maybe Intel will have 65nm Celeron that are 64bit and P < 20W :]

Thanks for all the help guys!

ALSO the sony g200 IS the finest 17" CRT to ever been built. i'm hoping LCDs will be able to match this g200 in definition and colour vibrance...

wow this is exactly the kind of thing i'm planning on doing in a new computer. can you show us a pic of the inside of your computer so we can see what your airflow is like. for example; case fans. or is it completely fanless and passive cpu cooling? ;)

yeh its settled, thanks for the help guys i'll be looking at an alternative. the clean power of that PSU is probably overkill when all the factors are weighed up.

sorry i didn't say but i chose that power supply because i think its the only power supply with voltage regulation and ripple control of such high quality. the computer will be for audio purposes so the sound card will need need to be fed with as clean power as possible.
