    Yeah, so i blew a trans ... and its a Porsche ... and its expensive ...

    BUT when i get some more cash after paying the autoshop bill this weekend, im gonna build a me a new PC. Its been awhile since ive done anything. Im still running the AMD 761 chipset, an XP1700, and a GF2MX400. So this is what im thinking...

    Abit NF7-S
    http://www.abit-usa.com/products/mb/nf7-s/
    Current Pricewatch price - 112$US

    2x 256Mb DDR Corsair XMS3200C2
    Current Pricewatch price - 89$US

    AMD Athlon XP2100
    Current Pricewatch price - 85$US

    GeForce4 Ti4200 (prolly MSI, dont know yet)
    Buy from Work - 150$US

    80Gb WDJB
    Current Pricewatch price - 125$US

    48x LiteOn CDRW
    Buy from work - 60$US

    Already own:
    Case
    Floppy
    HSF

    So im looking at spending about 625$US plus shipping.

    What do ya'll think?
    Prolly happen in 2-4 weeks. Depending on whether or not my boss can get a hold of Abit boards and Corsair RAM or if i have to wait for it to be shipped.

    Have a look at a Radeon 9500Pro - they're in the same price ballpark as the GF4Ti4200's & they beat it in most benchmarks - plus you get DX9 support (make sure it's a Pro though - the regular 9500's are a much different card).

    ...they're still a little hard to get right now though
