What are you talking about, just stop.

I know he's building a whole new computer, which is why he should get a Core 2 Duo system. I pointed out the Core 2 Duo specific parts which aren't more expensive than AMD specific parts.

In fact, just the motherboard and CPU are C2D specific, DDR2 works in AM2 and C2D systems.

What is a 461 comp?

461 = price lol srry bout that

and i know what your saying im just confused because he has 500 to work with (approximatly) and just those 3 things cost over 500.

btw are there ANY good PCI-E mobo's that support the C2D that cost under 100? jw

Here are three for under $50:

Six under $100:

Fact of the matter is that you aren't going to find a nice motherboard with nice features for under $100. For AMD OR Intel.

$100 for the OS? OUCH - Linux is free.

DS3 = $145

No big deal.

So then it will be like when you started using Windows. You'd never used Windows before... 'cept this time you have general knowledge of how computers work.

Nah, I'm just saying, if you didn't pay for Windows and used Linux which is free, you could get better hardware.
