Been out of the hardware loop for a while. I need to build a low end system to last me until I land the next good job. Right now I have a P3 1ghz 512 ram w/GeForce4 4400.
Please comment on system components or other stuff I may have missed. I'm not real confident in my MB and RAM choices. Also does anyone know how to find out if the MB I/O lines up with the back of certain cases? If it doesn't align that would be a real bummer.

I am planning to continue to use my GeForce4 4400 for now to save a few bucks on the system build. It's an easy upgrade later.
