drizo's build is the best one.. but i would make quite a few changes... as there are some compatibility issues...


you say you want core 2 duo, well thats not possible if you also want an LCD screen.. .drizo came close to your budget, but thats w/o the LCD... if you want lcd.. it'll cost quite a bit more.. i'll show you....
