John a few questions for you:
1. What AMD processor would you recommend if not the 4600 or the 4200?
2. Can you link me to the video card/s you're talking about?
3. I'm getting 2 GB of ram, but do you think I should get 2x 1 gig sticks or 4x 512 sticks? Is there a difference?
Thanks a bunch for the replies man
