$700 budget, show us a good build.
 
So we are going to build another PC and have a $700 budget. Here is what we are looking for:
AMD processor w/ 939 socket.
Mobo w/ 1 PCI-x
1 GB DDR400 RAM

We already have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers.

Show us the best system we could build using 700 bucks. When I mean best, I mean all around performance. Not a pure gamer by any means at all. Just little gaming.

This is what I would do:
Mobo: MSI K8N Neo4-F $85
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ $160 (you could get a better cpu if wanted)
Video: eVGA GeForce 6800GS $189
or eVGA GeForce 6600GT $115 (after rebate @ newegg)
RAM: 1GB quality brand $90
PSU: Fortron 450W $50
Case: Some $40 one
Total: $614 w/ 68gs
$540 w/ 66gt

You would still need to pick up a hard drive and dvd drive. If you take the 6600gt, you can take the money saved and spend it on the processor. :D

Drop the 450W Forton and just get the 400W Forton. Won't make a diff.
