Default New Build... plz help....

I going to build new comp (actually two, one for my aunt and other for my mother.. same builds).

I going to use AMD CPU.. (espatially since price went down .. and I use it now and love it )
Also most likely X2.

The two comps will not be super powerfull and stuff... More of kind of in middle.. and those that will last for a while.
Probably will not use for game that much.

Other thing is case.... That what I cannot really senttle on..

On one side.. buy Shuttle barebone..

or just get normal case and get motherbord and all that.. (that probably will be cheaper).
Any one know any good cases? and not too big also.

What do you all thing?
Any one have here Shuttle and whats your ideas?

nice build stylin golf shoes..

couple of things i would change...

RAM - no harm in getting 2 gigs... ppl love to multi-task these days.. and 1gig isn't really that much.. especially since the integrated will be taking away from the ram..

mouse/keyboard- i just plain don't like them

I honestly dont feel that onboard video affects performeance much unless you game

that card isnt worth the money because it wouldnt affect performeance a lot

get this card if you go with an extra one

Yep, there's only a need for something rather than onboard and that's if your doing something like photo/video editing, gaming, etc.
