    That would build you a quite nice machine :D

    2k...you can have a very nice rig. You can save money building your own box. YOU pick out your products and piece 'em together. The flip side of this, of course, is that you don't have a single company you can go to if there is a problem. If it's an easy fix, then you don't have to wait for them to fix it for you. But, it's more fun to custom tailor your own box to your specs. Computers aren't as tough to assemble as they used to be. You don't have to solder stuff together anymore---if you can use a screwdriver, you can put your own box together. Of course, READ THE F*CKING MANUAL before you do anything...that'll help to eliminate alota problems.

    NICE! would that be everything i need besides like a monitor and other stuff like that?
    also, did you just choose an amd processor or are they better than intel pentium4s?

    Yes, and the AMD Athlon64 is the best CPU out right now, especially with the future potential it beholds.

    Also, I'd get a Creative Labs Audigy 2 sound card instead of that M-Audio thing

    would that system be able to handle the game far cry?
    also, how does that compare to most of you guyses systems? anything you would change or add on, keep in mind i don't have the budget to go much over 2 thousand.

    dont get a prebuilt system because even an alienware wouldn't be as good as one you can build yourself and you can build a way better one for a lot cheaper and liek the other guys aid you will have much more options and such. And its not hard ata ll to build a PC. Tomshardware.com has a nice guide on building PCs that covers everything and its what i used when building my first PC.
