well just get one of those mATX cube cases with the motherboard already assembled, add a spare gfx card (or buy a cheap one), add a gig of corsair value ram, and get a zalman 7700-cu cpu fan (they're around $50 though) or maybe a fanless heatpipe cpu cooler (dunno how hot they would get )

Do you need this computer small for travel reasons? Because small computers=warmer computers. For your needs, a Intel would be ideal. What do you think of 64Bit Intels? They are pretty expensive, above 200$ from what i seen. But i think everyone should start investing in 64bit computers.

Heres one.

You can get a 32bit Intel, but in 2006 you will start seeing alot of 64bit applications. AMD 64bits are alot cheaper. If you want a cheaper 64bit, then AMD is your choice. But for your tasks, Intel is ideal. You tell me.

Cruise NewEgg's listing of barebones: http://tinyurl.com/a5t48

They have a LOT of them, lots more than ZZF. Most of them are for Intels, though.

You can even get barebones for 939, 754, 478, and LGA775 (first Socket T is a Foxconn @ $103).
