ooooh, so im incapable?
what he is talking about however is getting an nf7-s 2.0 motherboard and an xp-m 2400+ processor at 35w... along with any CRT monitor and an ATX case along with 2*512 sticks of RAM, and a midlevel graphics card... this may be hard to do on your budget so may i suggest going for 2*256 sticks of RAM or even lower than that 1*512 stick of RAM... CRT monitors are super cheap these days especially if you go for less than 19 inches... oh and the mobile processor and everything else i said above is available on www.newegg.com
, and i currently have my xp-m running at 2.5 ghz stable... so it is amazingly overclockable, and outperforms much more expensive chips.
