I just had a long talk with a friend who suggested this:
Athlon 64 3200+ (or better) 939 Socket
Not to sure on the video card yet, maybe a Radeon PCI express 256 DDR. Like this
939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Here
Then I plan on putting 1GB ram with a 60GB hard drive and my CD/DVD-R+R Burner
That sound like a pretty good gaming machine? Any suggestions or changes you think I should make. This all sorta fit nicely into what I want to spend, but I'll go farther if I have to.
haha, sorry my bad. I put the processor down as the video card. There I updated it.
