Building my first PC....
I am building my first PC. I am trying to keep it as inexpensive as possible. (<$100+case) I will mostlt use it for surfing DSL, maybe a few games.

Here is what I am thinking...

Linux OS
MGE SideWinder Shell
P3 mother board and cpu (brand?)
Seagate 200gig HD
Whatever CDRWs I cna find
The sidewinder comes with to side 80mms should I put another 120mm in the back, or an 80mm?
1gig of Ram (brand?)
Drop in a few cold cathodes
Do that make add on temp monitors?

I know I missed a few things, but i'm tired.

Thanks for any and all help,

Under $100 plus the price of case

I know, I'm cheap as hell.

phosho510 02-05-2005 10:51 PM

what?! so you are saying you want a cpu, mobo, hd, ram, os,case, and drive? for under 100? thats impossible if you divide everything into a hundred everything should cost at least 14 dollars. and that is not even possible....

CPU- $1 + ship
Mother board- $1 + ship
200 gig HD- $10 + ship

Nothing is impossible!

Do it ebay baby!:D

its probally used, or not working?
if it is probally working it wont work good.
u might as well save money and buy things brand new.

Click on the link I posted. It says sealed in box. Not much can go wrong. But if something is, just return to a store you buy a new one from, say it didn't work and oyu want a refund.

the price will go up, 3 days left

FOX1911 02-05-2005 11:06 PM
