New Build Recommendations

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!


I have been living in deepest darkest Africa for a couple of years so I have
fallen behind on technology somewhat and need some advice on a new build.

I have an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe with an Athlon XP2800 and have the system to be
fantastically stable and would like to stick to an AMD / ASUS baseline.

What ASUS AMD Mobo would you recommend?
What AMD Processor for the above?
What are we up to now 64 Bit, could someone give me a run own on the
different types.
What memory for the above?

Did Serial ATA Drives take off or is IDE still the Norm.

I am popping of to Germany for a shopping trip and now a couple of good
computer suppliers that I use to use so if I buy in Germany recommendations
here might be restricted to that market however any advice would be sound.
