I plan on building a new comp this summer (or sometime) so i've been browsing newegg and putting together a system that seems suitable to me and around $500, but do note something may change as newer parts are becoming available.
Intel E4300 1.8GHz LGA775 (<-- waiting on price drop)
GIGABYTE GA-945PL-S3 LGA 775 Intel 945PL
CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB)
Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3120811AS 120GB
LITE-ON Black 16X DVD+R
Nvidia 8300GT (waiting on release and availability, and i'm not changing it as DX10 games as a standard are far away and the most major game in my life (Counter Strike: Source) is DX9 based, so....yea)
Do note, i'm still thinking on what case i want (if i get one) and i dont need a PSU (got a good one waiting for some use). Plus I WILL eventually upgrade to 2GB's of RAM but since my current needs dont exceed the 1GB of old stuff i have now i'm nto going to worry (plus i'm not getting Vista intill SP1).
Other than that i cant think of anything else, but do make suggestions. Its kind of hard not knowing if something isnt going to work plus i would like others opinions.
