hey here's what i'm for sure gonna have in my build:
Antec TruePower 2.0 TP-II 550 550W
eVGA e-Geforce 7600 GT KO Video Card
Acer AL1916W Black 19" 8ms Widescreen
Western Digital Caviar SE16, 250 GB Sata 3 Gb/s, 16 mb cache
Other (case, windows XP Media Center, Keyboard/Mouse and CD/DVD drive)
after all that i'll have aprox. 550.00 left for a motherboard, RAM and processor. i can't decide if i wanna go conroe or X2 3800. i will be using this PC for gaming and animation as well as just regular usage.
I can't go more than 550 for the rest. If need be i might go to 575 but prefer around 500-550. Also, I want to use 2 GB of RAM as well and prefer a fast dual core processor but will settle for a single if it's fast enough.
i guess what i'm asking for is a list of what you guys think the best build for me to add to this would be. Maybe list some parts if possible and i'm open to other parts instead of the ones listed above (GPU, PSU...etc)
