to all those who stood up bravely for respect in the forums... i'm much obliged and, yeah, these things would be far more useful without a bunch of snobbish insults.

to all those who took shots... yeah, you caught me brain farting. coulda cleared carnegie friggin' hall with the stink. one too many late nights? was i lacking sleep? or was my bowl fresh outta uncharred crack rocks (as one clever, clever motorsccoter posted)? who cares!

for some (admittedly stupid) reason, I did not catch that there was a misprint... AGP 4x and AGP 8x were written as 4 x AGP and 8 x AGP. what threw me off was that these only had 1 PCI slot.

in my own defense, I did originally say...
[Maybe I'm not thinking of this straight but I see that as being problematic. ]

thanks to all y'all regardless of the hostility. i'll be using these forums more in the future...

as for the system... here's the specs:

Total Cost: $537 w/shipping for all parts

**MSI MBox w/300W PS, P4 LGA775 socket mobo w/533/800MHz FSB and 6ch sound & 64mb vid integrated
**P4 506 Prescott 533MHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache EM64T chip
**pqi 256mb DDR400 sysmem
**40G MDT HD @ 7200rpm
**Sony 52x CDR/RW
**Logitech keyboard
**DCT Factory optical mouse
**2.0 DCT Factory speakers
**15" CMV LCD Monitor
**HP DeskJet 3930 (w/cable and blk ink cartridge just so it's complete)

i figure this should be simple yet effective... it's for an older, older lady with little to spend who's never even breathed on a keyboard and needs something for her kid just entering highschool.

now i humbly turn to you ├╝berexperts once more, can we do any better on the price?

yours truly,

ur n00b

good to hear you're not put off by the first few posts , this forum isn't normally like that. perhaps for this purpose if you wanted to keep the price down you could use a prescott celeron and go for a CRT monitor instead of LCD.

just to let you know, the AGP slots are the dark brown and are usually a little bit closer to the expantion slots on the case. the PCI slots are small and white usually at the bottom of the motherboard. the PCI-E slots are long and thin, at the top. AGP4x/8x means the number of lanes on the slot. right now the fastest is PCI-E16x.

GO for AMD, it's cheaper and faster.
