Only 512MB RAM
No-name case, Average power supply
crappy sound card (Live 24-bit doesn’t have a hardware DSP)
Bad choice of XP Home
LCD has slow response time of 25ms (bad for gaming) and no DVI
Better hard disk choices than the Maxtor, and only 120GB
Better choices than LiteOn for DVD burning, IMO
Why buy a NIC card when the mainboard should have one? And why’d you choose an AGP graphics card for a PCIe mainboard? Why add a mouse to this config when you also have a keyboard/mouse kit? Looks like you did this in a big hurry. Oh, and then you ask us to rate your config, but then request we give it five stars. Gee, that’s objective.
I’m not voting on this…but this config needs a LOT of work before I’d call it “ultimate” anything.
