Need help building a pc!

I need to get a new pc. Just want a barebone system because I already have video card, sound card, hdd, nic, and dvd-rom. All I need is case w/power supply, mobo, proc, and mem. The only real requirement is good ole fashioned ps2 keyboard connectors not just usb. What's a good processor, what's a good mother board, what's good for memory? It's been a while (3 years) since I've built a computer so I have no idea what's new and hot now. I don't need the best but want something kinda speedy for a reasonable price.

Thanks guys!!

I'm partial to AMD processors and MSI motherboards. Just get what you can afford and also get a case that has a good power supply (300W plus).

Bikes and women - both have nice curves.

Re: Need help building a pc!

I'm partial to Intel... but I speak from a software company point of view, we do 95% of testing on our software on Intel and I suspect other companies do the same. With that said I don't think it is really that important in a home PC.

One thing I can add is don't limit yourself to a PS2 motherboard, an adaptor is cheap money and most new MBs are USB.
