Hi All - I'm thinking about having a computer built by these folks at http://www.familyco.com. They seem to have a good reputation here in Sac. But I thought I'd ask your opinions on some of the options they provide. I'm checking out their desktops - the one called "intel p4 super system 400Mhz..." Following is a list of components - I put an asterisk next to the one I chose and any general questions after the category. CASES - don't really care *Enlight Pentium 4 Mid ATX 7 Bay 300 Watt Power supply, Dual Fan, Screwless Inwin Pentium 4 Mid ATX 300 Watt Power Supply Antec Pentium 4 Mid ATX 300 Watt Power MOTHERBOARDS - no clue which to choose - isn't 533FSB the new thing? *ASUS P4TE Pentium 4 Mainboard, Socket 478, Pentium 4 1400 to 2200 CPUs, 400MHx Front Side Bus, AGP 4X ABIT TH7-II Pentium 4, Raid, ATA 100, Rambus Memory CPU - i assume a 2G processor should be fast enough?

I'll worry about the monitor, keyboard, speakers, etc. later. I figure approximately another grand for a good flat-panel monitor, decent speakers and the rest of the accesssories So, do you guys think this is a smart move? It seems like a pretty decent system for the price. I don't want to do mail-ordering and I'd like to stay local. Thanks in advance, Ted  oh yeah...obviously if you have suggestions for a better setup, please advise!
