you had the same budget as me then i realized i was spending a ton of money. But these are the basics for the core parts

MSI K8N NEO4-F, no need for a DFI
Cosair valueselect 1GB 512*2
eVGA 7800GT
Amd Athlon 64 3700+

do some research though still at newegg.com (you cant go wrong with newegg) becuase not all people know exactly what you want and are doing with it

Thanks dude. Im thinking about gettin the amd 4000 processor. My friend recommended me:
Motherboard - Abit Fatal1ty AN8 SLi SKT939 NF4
Graphics Card - XFX GeForce 6800XT
Processor - AMD 64 4000+
Ram - 1gb corsair

In my op these are alright components but what do you people think of them. Do you wreckon theyll run the latest games ok?
