Default Before I order.....

Could you make sure that my list is good and nothing should be changed before I order it. PZEROFGH put most of it together for me so it should be good. I just have to make sure before ordering so I can avoid having to RMA something. lol

https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...udget+Computer

Just incase that link doesn't work I'll post it here aswell.

Case - RAIDMAX Astro ATX Black
Motherboard - Foxconn Socket 754 SiS 755 ATX AMD Motherboard
Processor - AMD Sempron 64 2600+ Palermo 800MHz FSB Socket 754
Memory - CORSAIR ValueSelect 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)
Video Card - eVGA Geforce MX4000 128MB DDR AGP 4X/8X
Hard Drive - Western Digital Caviar SE 80GB 7200 RPM Serial ATA150
Optical Drive - NEC Silver IDE ND-3550A
Power Supply - FSP Group (Fortron Source) ATX12V 450W
Monitor - ViewSonic E70B Black 17" CRT Monitor D-Sub
Operating System - Microsoft Windows XP HOME Edition With Service Pack 2

Using this computer for internet browsing, downloads, and some old games.

I'm on a pretty tight budget as you can see but I'd be willing to go up a little in price if it would make a difference in the things I'll be using the computer for.

thanks

Show me a Dell that is better than the setup I posted and that costs under $580.

I might get a bigger hard drive but that is up to me and how much space I think I'll need.

Dell?! Um, where did you get that idea? Just out of curiosity you know. I don't know, Dells just aren't that good of computers and Intel's only good for the internet.

Talldude suggested that I get a Dell for some strange reason. I guess his reason was that the hard drive I had selected was not big enough. lol

Yeah so I guess everything is good so I'll go ahead and order the parts.
