oh and pzero, thats a pci e graphics card with an agp slot mobo, the agp version of hte graphics is somethi9ng like 15 dollars more.

edit:

do i get the 40 dollar usb adaptor, hook it into my usb port, and the only other thing i need is the router itself?

only two things right, no other hub type thing or pci card?

TOTAL PRICE AROUND 553


553 for everything including wireless router and a usb adapter to hook to your computer for internet from the router

i had to downgrade the video card to a 9600xt this would still probably be able to play age of empires 3 on low to med settings, and bf2 on low settings. this is probably the best computer you can build for under 580 dollars with a wirelss router and usb adapter
