you guys need some experience intervention... Here's my recommended setup.
Case of your choice ~60
PSU: Rosewill RV450-2 ATX 2.01 450W ~41
AMD Athlon 3200+ ~160
MSI K8N Neo4-F s939 ~85
OCZ Value Series 2x512mb ~72 after mail in rebate
eVGA 6800GS PCIe 256mb ~209
WD Caviar 120gb 7200rpm SATA ~75
DVD Burner of your choice ~40
Floppy drive and cables + neon stuff if you want add 50 bucks.
Total: $792 SHIPPED
Edit: I want absolutely no response on the quality of rosewill. No one in these forums has TRIED the parts. I have, and continue to use them in my custom builds for others. The performance is above average, the quality has been 100%, and the price is right. Don't talk about something you haven't used. Thank you.
Very nice job, Ryan! Truly impressed. This was what I was trying to get at for samtag in my inital reply.
Samtag, what Ryan posted is waaaayyyy more bag for the buck and, yes, you can upgrade. This is considerable better expenditure of money.
