Default Another budget PC.

I keep configuring Pcs and getting angry at the specs, either them being lame, or too expensive. I'm trying for $1300 with monitor, so far I've got:

Case: APEVIA (ASPIRE) X-CRUISER-BK Black Steel ATX M-Tower Computer Case - $69.99

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Toledo 2000MHz
HT Socket 939 Dual Core Processor Model ADA4800CDBOX - $369

RAM: CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) System Memory - $84.99

Video Card:

HDD: SAMSUNG T133 Series HD300LD 300GB 7200 RPM
8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 Hard Drive - $96.99

CD Drive 1: Pioneer Black 16X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X
CD-ROM 2M Cache ATAPI 16X DVD±R DVD Burner With 5X DVD-RAM Read

This is all I've been able to find, I'm clueless as to the rest.
