Default Around $800 ?

Does anybody know what a good Build for me that would cost around $800 would be? It would be the first time i would build a Pc so i would like it to be easy but still pretty Fast.
Im thinking a Core2 and 2Gigs of Ram to start but whats a good Mobo, Case, PSU, Ect?

Not a chance for that, I just had K M A N build me one up with that. That cost around 1300$.

Would it be used for gaming, do you need a monitor, keyboard etc?

Floppy isn't needed, though you would need a CD-Drive to install windows.

Looks compatible, though I would get some help from someone more experienced at computers before you build it.

I say drop the Sonata, get a Centurion 5 and a FSP 400w. or 450w and make the HDD a 250gb or a 160gb. No floppy.. get an e6300 and DS3, and with that money get a better aftermarket heatsink or better RAM... or whatever, just I say if you're limited to 800 dollars, get the DS3 over the P5B..
