if all that is too expensive you may just want to go with a plain agp mobo for an intel 3 or 3.2ghz

Please edit somall coments into one post... And as far as the 2gb of ram you posted GageMW,
Speed: DDR2-533(PC2-4200)
Type: 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM
Error Checking: Non-ECC
Registered/Unbuffered: Unbuffered
Cas Latency: 4
Support Voltage: 1.8V
Organization: two 128M x 64-Bit
Bandwidth: 4.2GB/s
Warranty: Lifetime

To me a CAS Latency of 4 is too slow...
Also I believe the memory I listed would still work faster and better than that 2gb of valueram.

well if the OCZ Platinum Enhanced Bandwidth Revision 2 Limited Edition Dual Channel Kit 240-Pin 1GB will REALLY be as quick as 2 gigs of ram with worse latency then i think ill make the switch to this intel system,

it seems it will also be better suted to future upgrades supporting ddr2 ram and pci-E

ill post a new config tonight

Yea but I suggest you get the eVGA 6600GT PCI-Express... It will be better. It is a much more trusted brand. Also which is the actual price at the end of each item? Some of them repeat the price and some have different ones.

alright ill check out the evga card

the 2nd price at the end of each one is the final price for that item (1st is the unit price, 2nd price is the total price.. ie.. if i bought three of something it would be 3x the first number)

they are all the price listed, the only one thats different is the 19" CRT since im getting 2 of them, $219 each, 440 total
