Buy a motherboard/ CPU combo. This way, you get a good purchase. Also, buy good RAM. It's cheap. Never buy a WD hard drive- they are just a heavy paperweight. Always buy Seagate. Here are some suggestions:

Biostar K8M800 Micro Motherboard CPU Bundle - AMD Athlon 64 3500+ - 2.20GHz Processor OEM at TigerDirect.com

]http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2604150&CatId=2545] Thermaltake TR2-R1 AMD Socket AM2939754 Aluminum 92mm Fan CPU Cooler A4022 at TigerDirect.com

Kingston 1024MB PC5400 DDR2 667MHz Memory KVR667D21GR at TigerDirect.com

Ultra X3 ULT40071 800-Watt Power Supply - ATX, SATA-Ready, PCI-E Ready, Energy Efficient, Modular at TigerDirect.com

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3333729&CatId=134

HP dvd1035i DVD Writer (Retail) - 48x CD-R, 32x CD-RW, 20x DVD±R, 8x DVD±R DL, 8x DVD=RW, 6x DVD-RW, IDE HPDVD1035I at TigerDirect.com


And the cheapest case you can find with adequate airflow.
Remember- A good computer can be built for less than $600

Good Luck

not overclocking so brand doesnt matter, just grab the cheapest stuff you can find.

The second part of your question, i dunno.
