Default I Got Money Yaa!!

Ok i won myself $10K from a lottery scratcher about 3months ago.Ya it took that long to get it to me.

So after paying some bills and pay off my bike..i wanna spend about $800 for a new system. Ya it sucks i win 10K and i get to spend $800 oh well.

i have HD's and dvd-r and stuff..What i want is a list of the best parts that my money can buy. CPU,RAM,MOBO,VIDEO and possibly water cooling so i can overclock. I dont really have time to filter thru EVERY WEBSITE out there and read up on al lthe NEW stuff.. Can someone help me out

I do not live in the US but from what I have read on other posts newegg is the best place to buy stuff.
If you want any more detailed replies I would suggest that you write a list of a system you are considering getting and let people change bits, to just say "I dont really have time to filter thru EVERY WEBSITE out there and read up on al lthe NEW stuff" probably won't get you much help.

Pentium 4 2.8 with M0 stepping.
Only air cooling tho

How about this. It a litle more than $800, but some people would agree that it's top of the line. You could go with the 6800 for a video card, and you could change the speakers too. This was part of a proposal i put together for work. I was trying to get the boss to order us a new computer.
