I am 3 parts away from the launch of my new system. I previously had an AMD Athlon 550 Slot A machine. It ran very well. It had a few problems with the Biostar motherboard's AGP slot being bad, but otherwise ran like a champ. The machine I am currently constructing is an AMD Athlon XP 2000+ cooled by the Thermaltake Volcano 7 (soon to be an Innovatek H2O system) with 512MB of PC2100 DDR RAM, Soyo DRAGON+ MoBo, Western Digital Caviar 120GB w/ 8 MB cache, Enermax 465 switching power supply with adjustable rear fan speed, Lian Li PC-68 case, Winfast GeForce 2 32MB video card and a Diamond MX300 Monster Sound card. I'm using the rounded IDE and floppy cables and a non-metallic CPU shim with Arctic Silver 3 compound. This is the nicest machine I have ever built. I hope it doesn't let me down.
