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.

Looks good, just dont expect to upgrade much with a 754 system.

Processor: AMD Athlon 64 3000+ (
Motherboard: Biostar Mobo SLI SUPPORTED (
Memory: Corsair 1gb (2x512) DDR (
Video Card: eVGA Geforce 6600GT 128mb PCIE (
Power Supply: Aspire 500w (
Case: This is the one im getting btw but you dont have to get it... Sky Eagle with window (

Just use onboard sound or buy a 30 dollar turtle beach card and get a 80gb hd from somewhere along with monitor...
When you add an 80gig hard drive, a monitor, WindowsXP , and an optical drive that build comes to $805......

I was saying a complete computer with windows and a monitor for under 580, not just the tower. I'm only paying about $300 for the case and internal components.

dell doesnt sell AMD processors though. Once in a while they make deals, like free monitor, cd-rw, printer, etc.
