    I have basically what your old pc is except 800mhz p3 and 512MB pc133 ram. I just went to win2k maybe a month ago and CS works great on it. I'm trying to put off building a new machine for at least another year.

    Let us know how your new machine it after its all up and running...

    Nice system. You should be very happy with it.
    One suggestion. While the case itself is nice, you may want to think about getting a new PSU for it. You may want more than a 250W PSU.
    Well, have fun... [​IMG]

    I ordered a 350W power supply with the case.
