First, what is your budget for a new PC?

I suggest getting yourself Intel Core 2 Duo if you have a nice budget ^_^

AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Venice
MSI K8N Neo4-F
Palit Geforce 6200TC 256Mb
2x512Mb SS Corsair Value Select
160Gb Seagate SATA

You can get a very very nice pc for that budget. Do you want a pre-built or are you looking into building it yourself.
