    So scroll down to see the list.. I'm just keep to know that the cpu and the mobo are okay together, and that mobo and case are okay too...

    sounds great, i would only mention the sb live sound card, because i really am having alot of trouble with them, i have a audigy2 and my wife has the sb live5.1, i am having trouble with some apps, like paltalk and some media players. i pulled my audigy and am now using the on-board via sound and it sounds better, cant use my some of my speakers, but i can talk on paltalk and do a few other things again. my wife has the sb live on a intel 845 chipset and has the same troubles with the same apps, machines are different in every respect, i have a athlon, she has p4, i have nvidia video card, she has radeon.......so i am at a loss, tried every update, firmware/bios/drivers/irq settings i could think of, even has the same trouble on a 9x system. the cards seem to work fine at yahoo, and with windows media player, winamp, i notice the distortion with fruityloops, cooledit pro,paltalk,voice2video,quicktime player, powerdvd 6 and any time i use my mixer.
