U might also want to know that the PC will be used for multiple applications(I also tend to run many things at the same time) and some gaming/music/DVDs etc.
Dya think im better off getting a AMD Athlon 64 4000+ San Diego 90nm (Socket 939) instead of faffing around with dual-core?

go with dual core good for what you intend to do using multiple applications, and will hold up more in the future when more applications and games take advantage of dual core.

y not just get a 3800+ and dump the floppy (probably will never use it if you get a burner or a USB stick...)

And get a 7800 gtx 512?

he said only some gaming I think what he has is good enough a 7800GTX 256 will do fine and a floppy drive is cheap might as well have one or one of those multi ones which accepts memory sticks too.
