Default My computer

Okay, what I'm going to do here.. is start a thread about my computer. What I'm doing is making my first comptuer!! Heres what I want:

Under 800$
AMD 64
1 gb RAM (Dual channel <- What's differ from that and non-dual?)
Good FSB
Nice video card

I'll think about more later, as of now, I think I've got the processor I want:
[Edit] One of these two, I dunno if I want 3200+

http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16819103501 3000+ or 3000+

http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Produ...82E16819103502 3200+


That's an AMD Athlon 64 3000+, 512KB L2 Cache, Socket 939 64-bit Processor

Is that shizzle good.

Thanks all,

Steve

are you going to OC?
do you already have a case you want to use?
what games are you gonna play (not really important)?

btw dual channel is what you want, not single channel (i can't really explain it though) single works 64bit, while dual works 128bit

No, I'm not going to OC, and I'm going to be playing Starcraft: Broodwar, and possibly Doom 3

Will this motherboard work:

I'm thinking it is, but I need expertise,

Thanks all so much for helping, I love you!!

I'm not necessarily in it for the gaming, either, but I want to have a NICE computer. I want to be ready for future programs, too. Plus, I work my but off (I'm 16) and I don't reward myself, I put it all in the bank... pretty depressing.. But, I'm trying this new 'hobby' out, and it's very fun.. again, thanks for all the help
