I second that. There's no point in being restricted to an emachines case. I don't know about his specific model, but every emachines rig that I have been in did not seem to have a well laid out case.

some dvd-r drive
2 gb crucial ballistix ram
af64
I searched alot of this on Newegg, judging from the reviews on your suggestions, they look like all good choices. One problem I think I'll have is that the processor you have in mind is Out of Stock, and from the reviews, I wouldn't doubt if this is the case all the time...

Also, I searched for AF64 and got no results, what exactly IS that? And would all these parts be good for a gaming computer?

sorry about that i have the tendecny to abbreviate

u could go open box:

Newegg.com - Open Box: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - OEM

or

u can get this: Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - Retail

but u are paying for the stock intel cooler which u don't need
