Well, after a few days of work (and asking alot of questions on here as well) I think I got three pretty good payloads... But I have to ask to get ideas on the best, and any ways to approve them.

(And my budget is $500. Build two is special because I would be getting the ATi at a later time, but I included it in the layout anywatys.)

For build two and three, I have a older 17" CRT and keyboard/mouse and what not...
Any suggestions for any of the builds, and which one I should go with would help alot.
the computer is going to be a primary box, and I will use it a lot for gaming, and learning more about how networks work/etc.
