    Thanks. I bought all of that just over a year ago. I spent $300 on the vid card, 99 for the sound, and I forgot the rest. lol. It was a $500 setup. $500 for everything down to... where the speakers start and including the DVD drive. I bought the speakers for $150 2 years before I upgraded I think.

    EDIT: The 17" ViewSonic LCD was $500, brand new, off of ebay, which was a graduation gift. It worked excellent as a space saver for my first year of college. I don't even notice the ghosting effect in games such as CounterStrike or movies.

    That depends. Are you on a budget or do you want to build the most blazing PC possible? If you are on a budget, tell me the maximum amount you are willing to spend.

    Regardless, that is a good PC for anyone... gamers, programmers, and media encoders alike. You can't go wrong with Abit. That is a great company. 512MB of RAM is sufficient and your CPU is a good combination of price/performance. The only major additions you need are a new video card, and perhaps a sound card if you are an audiophile like me and you can't bear the standard on-board 6 channel audio.

    Well I orders all that already and I only had a budget of £340.00 and used every penny just about on the above.

    There was other stuff that looked like it could be better so what I have settled for is the best I could out of what I had in the way cash.

    Hmm I actually liked the sound of 5.1 audio. better than sounds cards I have had in the past.

    But yeah

    £340! Wow, you just worked all of that under budget. Good job. That is the best you can get for that price.

    glad ya think so all I realy need now is a new Graphics card,
    but like I said I will just have to wait for that.

    I havn't even started looking yet I think I will get some advice on the Card as some of the GeForce 4 cards are not even as good as my GeForce 2 in alot of ways (I'm not even talking about the TV-Out bit either)

    I will be sticking to nVIDIA I think for the graphics though

    Well anything just about is better than the PC I am on now my lil PIII 450 Slot 1 with the max I can have of memory 256mb and a slow 12gig HD.

    You might just want to use the nForce2' integrated grahpics instead of your Geforce 2 in the meantime. It's performance is likely equal to the Geforce 2, though I have not seen comparative benchmarks.
