Default want to build a new PC

hello, i saw y'all post

I'm looking for a custom buidl computer too? can you help me? I do web/grahip/ video development.

I know a p4 800fsb, 2.6 ghz woyuld be the right choice with a 865 or 875 intel board. also 80-120GB S-ata.

otherwise i hear that i will go cheaper with a AThlon....

I also checked out www.tcs-custom.com, they have under custombuild computers AMD and P4, i'll get $1200 if i would put that suff togheter on that site but i don't know what maches.

Also I checked outwww.ibuypower.com but i get confused with all the raid controller/ configuration, IDE controller and so.. can some one put me a good system spec. together with details about everything?

thanks
thanks

well under $1000 would be great ... without monitor, mouse+keyboard,

AMD or P4 ... P4 is the better choice 4 graphic development (Photoshop) but a AMD should do good enough too, what i heard

I build computer systems, and would be happy to give you something like what I have in my sig. You can upgrade it very cheaply, and if you do upgrade, I might give you a discount on the total price. I would be happy to work with you on this, you can either email me at arialvison @yahoo.com or we can talk in the thread here.

Heck, that aint a bad price. For the exact same setup, with a cd-rw/dvd-rom drive instead, would run you about $1050 even from me. And I dont have the warranty thing, I just have manufacturer warranty.
