I don't have money to burn, and when I invest in a new system I reall do my research. So I have been spending the last 2 days putting together the best A64 system I can for under $650. And this is what I have come up with:

Newegg WishList

I-Star 24 pin to 20 pin ATX Converter, Model TC-24/20

CHAINTECH NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra Chipset Motherboard For AMD Socket 939 CPU, Model "VNF4/Ultra" -RETAIL

Chaintech nVIDIA GeForce 6600GT Video Card, 128MB DDR3, 128-Bit, TV-Out/DVI, PCI-Express, Model "SE6600G" -RETAIL

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ 1.8GHz, 512KB L2 Cache 939-Pin 64-bit Processor - OEM

Corsair XMS Extreme Memory Speed Series, (Twin Pack) 184 Pin 512MB(256MBx2) DDR PC-3200 with Platinum-Silver Heat Spreader - Retail

ARCTIC-COOLING Freezer 64 CPU Cooler For Socket 754/939/940, Model "ACFZ64" -RETAIL

Total: $644.35

Ouch!! But hey, I am upgrading from a Socket A Athlon 1.0 Ghz, everything in my system is out-dated, except my HDD. Which is still ATA/133 but Its pretty much the only thing other than my SB Audigy 2 that will stay in. Once I get this system in, I will be spending waaaay too much time playing games. But I will be happy, and I wont have to upgrade anything major for a while. I can just grab more RAM if I need to ( wish I could afford a gig for this rig ), and when the 4000+ drops down, I should be able to hold this system for a while. I have had this 1.0 Ghz system since 2001. Last upgrade was the Audigy 2, prevoius to that was the Radion 9000 Pro. I just cant wait for the mobo to get back in stock. I hope its there when I order the rest of the stuff, really dont want to have everything except the mobo.

Don't worry. I _will_ let you know when its up and running.

Oh, do I still write code? Not in 2 days I have not. Not sure whats really next in there either. I am going to have to get some help on my collision responce. I think I will search the forums for sphere-AABB responce tonight, see if there is anything I can figure out. I am still getting the sphere locked inside of the AABB, I did add some code to try and clip it out of the AABB, but that is still a bit buggy.
