Default Near final system

- AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Socket 939
- ABIT AN8-V Socket 939 Motherboard
- 1GB (2 x 512MB) DDR 400 (PC 3200)
- 80GB SATA 7200rpm Harddrive
- DVDROM/CD+-RW
- ABIT RX700-LE GURU Radeon X700 256MB Card
- FREE 17'inch CRT Monitor (Man. 1998)

$977


I know everyone will say that I should get a 6600gt but this card should be good enough to run new games right? Other than that, should I let my builder overclock or should I have it stock. I highly doubt I would oc it myself. I would also need additional cooling equipment.

well the x700 is actually right with the 6600gt if not close. but since u already got the x700 getting a 6600gt now would be pointless, u would not see enough performance for it to be worth it, or if you want more out of what u paid for overclock that x700! lol and your cpu but you should run anygame at mostly high settings with no AA, ur good to game. lol

Now my comp has everything I want.

Alright so now this is what it looks like:

- AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice Socket 939
- ABIT AN8-V Socket 939 Motherboard
- 1GB (2 x 512MB) DDR 400 (PC 3200)
- 80GB SATA 7200rpm Harddrive
- DVDROM/CD+-RW
- Geforce 6600gt PCI Express graphics card
- FREE 17'inch CRT Monitor (Man. 1998)

$980

So now Im left to decide if I want it overclocked. It will come with a 500 w PSU that comes with the case.


I also need to decide how to pay for it. My options are money order, bank transfer, or paypal.(or credit card which I dont have.) Which is the safest and quickest?

paypal is quickest if you have an account set up, but I assume you don't since you don't have a credit card anyway. Money order is least hassles I think, but really... pay someone to use thier credit card or something.
