    If I were you I'd go with an
    A7N8X Deluxe nForce2 AMD Athlon XP/Duron, Socket A, ATX, 3GB DDR-SDRAM, 333MHz FSB
    which will only be 129.00 you can find it here at http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...c7043a248578f6

    and for the case which is 112.00

    you can find it here at http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...c7043a248578f6

    processor

    96.00

    you can find it here at

    http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...c7043a248578f6

    and for the ram

    155.00

    you can find it here at

    http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_g...c7043a248578f6

    all totaled up 500$ A little much, but definetly a speed demon barebones system
    and will most certianly handle any game you throw at it with ease.

    Hey look! /\

    It wasn't me that suggested the AMD alternative this time. :laugh:

    Gee I hope some ppl out there noticed that :p

    Oh btw 0R1()N I'm just waitin' on an Athlon XP2600+ to arrive so I can finish the AMD cost equivalent of that same P4 system (well in Australia anyway) usin' all the same parts except for the XP2600+ and EPoX 8RDA+ mobo (the AMD is a whole $5aus/$3us dearer) as everthing else was obtained in pairs (except the AMD will be all blue LED fans). These two PC's will also be part of a new business that I'm startin' very soon. :devil win

    I've only had Asus and intel chipset mobos how are the epoxes?

    And what can I say I'm an Amd fan, speaking of which....what about the mac G4's? aren't they suppose to be superior to intel and amd at lower processing speeds, for instance 800mhz g4 = same as amd 1.4?

    I hope your not talking about the 1.73 ghz processor for $96.20. I doubt that'll cut the mustard, I'll be upgrading before I get it broke in.:?:

    I think I'll break my budget if I know what to get.... Do you do alot of video gaming and whats your most system demanding game you play set at the highest setting without a hint of lag?

    My Compaq case is probably piority but it might be worth checking around incase I can use it. They can't give out information like that at Compaq so I'll have to go to another source or measure my current board and try to figure out what it is.
    Albatron is a company formed by former employee's of Gigabyte. I just love the board because (granted my proc overclocks real well) i've had my system (gutted but still) post at 3.477ghz (stock 2.533ghz) and i've used several other p4 boards in the last 6 months for overclocking, and the next board that came close to oc'ng that well was the gigabyte ge667 which got my same 2.53 to post at 181mhz fsb (3.439ghz) ... board is stable... only two quams with it tho, the 12v aux connection is right upside my volcano 7+, leaving little room for manuever, and the board slightly undervolts the processor (bios setting of 1.525v (stock) cpu-z and other programs report cpu voltage at 1.44v... right now, at 1.775 cpu-z is reporting 1.71v) It may not have a lotta features this board, but i find it great :) (the px845pe pro ii oc's as well (convinced a buddy of mine into buying one, and his proc oc'd to 175mhz (4.025ghz (from 3.06)) w/ swiftech water cooling unit.

    It's all a matter of personal preference (and the albatron px845pe pro ii has more features, but also has a jump 80 CDN$ in price) than the px845pev pro ... but i'm quite content right now with this board until the 800mhz p4's come out, then new proc and board :)
