Default Re: I need a new computer, but

Fry's ad today had an X2 4200+ and motherboard for $85. Also had 2gbs of Kingston HyperX for $50.

I haven't tried this before, but here is a wishlist I created in newegg, if you can see it it worked:


Its an x2 4000+ cpu, motherboard, 2gbs of ram, case and psu for $250

Its microatx which some people hate. I happen to like them. Smaller PC. You can usually only fit 2 cd drives in them...but who needs more than 2 cd drives? Alot of prebuilt machines are microatx, actually. If its a full tower...its very tall.

Don't buy parts based only on my reccomendation.

Alot of people here know much, much more about this kind of stuff than me.

Antec 300 Illusion
430w Antec Earthwatts
AMD Q4 640 Propus
2x4gb Patriot DDR3 1333
750gb Seagate 7200.11 Hard Drive
