sorry if i wasnt clear. im building two.
Heres the first one, its for my gf:
need advice/recommendations for budget build($500 budget)

the 2nd one needs to be bouight sooner since she has the money ready for me.(1k budget)

she gave me 500bucks today so i gotta buy somestuff before the sale runs out.

my gf's current laptop has a 1400pro mobil radeon, so im guessint the x1650pro is better...and for my manager it really doesnt matter what i get her for gpu, anything cheap and good will be ok, im considering an 8400gs 256bit for her.

Antec Earthwatts 500w psu with the 7600gt = $120(after bundle savings)
Seagate 320gb hdd = $65
A data 2gb extreme edition = $52
Cooler Master-690= $60
Samsung Dvd Burner = $34
Acer 19" WS lcd = $190
Logitech keyboard & Mouse combo = $50

Total before rebates = $735

Not bad right?

So far ive oc the cpu to 2.5 and have the ram at 4 4 4 12. Temps idle around 35-40(on stock cooler)
Im not sure what temps it shouldnt cross when on prime95 load?

Well thats all i got, ill post pics up soon.
