bad news: integrated video! it won't be bad for you tho.. and on your budget just not possible to get a vid card.

ok this is what i have..

a-power i know is a really good place to buy from, lotta ppl like them, but unfortunately they don't have the best prices. i picked 2 other places that are cheaper.. and if you want to pay more you can go to a-power.. for best price i got the parts from 2 diff stores.. (i assume you're from van so you could just drive to these places)

Samsung 793DF-II 17" CRT, Black/Silver $136.98

OCZ 1GB 400MHz PC3200 Premier Series Dual-Channel DDR OCZ4001024PDC-K $109.98

Seagate 80GB SATA Hard Drive 7200RPM NCQ $65.98

LG 4167B DVD Writer 16x +/- DVD-RW Black OEM $43.98

Antec SLK1650B 17" Tower Black 350W Power Supply $79.98

MSI K8NGM2-FID Skt 939 Motherboard $99.98

and from

AMD Athlon64 3000+ Socket 939 Processor *Venice* $149.95

so thats total: $686.83 +tax.

you may also want to look at prebuilt setups from futureshop or something.. see if they have better value systems (it can happen!).

last note: other can help with this, you could probably get a similarly priced intel dual core 2.66ghz system. would you want that?

good luck
