Default computer question

I just bought a new Opteron 144 Venus CAB2E processor
to be the core of my budget gaming comp.
I have a ultra dragon case and 500w x-connect power supply, and a copy of windows xp but was wanting some recomendations for a good cheap comp.


Budget for the rest of the build $700.00 was wanting to have nvidia for g-card if possible.

this will be my first build

thanks, colin

Flanker is a member who had over 2000 posts who got himself banned the other day by doing something not so smart.

the 6800gs is the lowest you should go if you have the cash. but the 7800gt is a lot better than the 6800gs.
