    I posted threads earlier about RAM and graphics cards and other crap. Well I realized theres just too many flaws, so i'm getting a new one.
    I'm looking for suggestions. Here are a few things I want:

    1-2 gb of RAM

    reg. mouse reg. keyboard.

    a decent (not as expensive) AMD processor with PCI-E or agp 8x

    and decent grahpics and sound. (getting a new graphics card anyway)

    50-100gb hard drive.

    and no other accesroies

    AND in the range of 500-1,000 dollars



    Thanks
    Comment back please

    for $100 you will have no problem building a good system.
    RAM: OCZ, Corsair or Crucial Technologies
    something like a 667 or 800

    I can not reccoment a processor or motherboard as i do not use AMD, I bought an MSI motherboard.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...12&Submit=ENE&Manufactory=1312&SubCategory=22

    Graphics card: PCI-E XFX GeForce 7600GT 256 or above

    Sound card may not be needed if you get a motherboard with a good on board Hi Def. audio like my MSI. You would only need it if you wanted really high end sound because my on board 8 channel HD audio sounds great through a surround system.

    Mouse & keyboard is more a personal choice. I like logitec products.

    Hard drive i would go much bigger than 100GB seeing that you can get a 250GB Western digital or Seagate at Newegg.com for about $80-$90

    Case: Gigabyte Posiedon-Black (for ATX motherboards)
    Power supply: Enermax 620 watts

    I bought all my parts at Newegg.com, they are a great store with really good prices. The motherboard will be your most important choice. Check them out really closely to make sure it has everything you want. I really would not spend under $100 on one as it is the most important part you will buy for your new system.

    Oh and Krkm it looks like a good deal with all the parts but the only problem is I'm really not good enough to put all this into a empty system, if there was a way to put this all in to a computer and order it tell me and i'll look in to it.

    it seems good but it would be cheaper to build it your self


    but if u dont want do build it that one sounds good

    if i where you i would choose the next one down the 256MB NVIDIA Geforce 7300LE TurboCache-E521 for the video card tho

    also windows home edition sucks i recammend windows xp professional i had home edition it was slow asap i bought xp pro

    Here's the thing though, if I could get a computer that came with the battery the proccessor already in it I probably would buy parts seperate.

    oh, well I looked it up and I didn't get that many good reviews I just don't know if it's worth the money. I was gonna get like a good 250 dollar won in the summer though but I think the intergrated is allright for now, still havne't ordered anything yet so keep giving ideas.

    ANOTHER question

    is the AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core 3800+ worth another 30 bucks over the AMD Sempron™ 3400+?

    Yes, although I don't see where you're pricing this from... Go with the 3800 x2.
