Well I planned on making ~$100 from 1, $150 from the one that went for more... so 250 in total. But it happened like this... The price of the videocards went up $20 at the time I ordered. Paypal took a percentage which was atleast $60 on each. So Im already down $80 on each one.... and that extra money I used to buy my Sound blaster audigy.

Default Yep

This is what I'm looking at but it will probably change, anything wrong with the set-up?

ANTEC Life Stlye Series Black Case ($99)

52x32x52x16 Combo Drive

52x32x52 CD-RW Drive

Optorite 12X DVD+/-RW Drive ($88.99)

Intel Pentium 4 / 2.8E GHz 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache ($167)

Seagate 160GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive ($119.75)

Kingston HyperX Series 184 Pin 512MB DDR PC-2700 ($115)

SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON 9800 PRO Video Card, 128MB DDR , 256-bit ($209)


I was wondering, Do I need 3 Bays Internal or External & 3.5" or 5.25" on Case with 3 Disk Drives going in it. I have no clue, do you?


Thanks!

I'll probably go something like -

P4 2.8 / 800 SB / 1MB
512MB RAM
160 GB HD
256 ~ Graphics
CD-RW
DVD-RW (12x)

Need to study on the Specs a bit more. Anyone know some of the best and most popular Memory, Harddrive, Graphics, Disk Drives to get?


Thanks Everybody!

No, don't get the P4 2.8E, get the 178 dollar 2.8C (512k cache), check out what I was able to do with it, on AIR, that's a LOT better than a 2.8E can do, unless you like water a lot.

Default 512Kb Cache vs. 1MB L2 Cache

Yeah, I was thinking 1MB L2 Cache was faster than 512Kb Cache.
