$35/month for cable (now $42/month), 2Mbit (was recently cut to 1.5Mbit), but nonetheless, AT&T gives out unlimited bandwidth here.

I'd go with a GeForce4 4600, a 4200 is just basically a suped up Geforce 2. Or so i've heard...

GeForce4 Ti 4200 and 4600 are based on the exact same chip - NV25. Only difference is that the 4200 has support for 64 and 128 MB of memory (others only 128), plus variations in clock speed. The only 'souped up' GeForce2 is the GeForce4 MX (NV17).

Wow, your right lol I totally didnt know this thread was that old. I still havent built myself a gaming comp. No money income, its just another lost dream . SOMEDAY!!!! hehehe Right now im kinda leaning towards something a tad cheaper like art (although believe me, nothing can replace the joy of playing diablo 2 late at night, for days on end, or tactical ops all day in the same old servers, where everybody knows your name ). Oh I miss it all so much.... But with a ghetto computer, its really hard to play games anymore, nearly impossible... someday...

Look at my computer specs..... O_o (they're in my sig)

My computer should be worth at lest 10k becasue it's "ancient".
I also have a Macintosh all the way back from around the 1990s that is still in perfect working condition. ^_^ I'll sell it to you for 25k (It even has the first edition of Sim City.
