Ok for gaming, on a budget, 6600GT without a doubt, AOpen 6600GT on Newegg for $138 after rebate.

As far as the processor, the higher the frequency the better is all I have to say. AMD tends to do better in gaming, maybe look towards them. If you still want to get a P4, for around $170 you can get a 2.8 Ghz or 3 .0 Ghz P4.

For HD's, Seagate, or Western Digital.

Wow thanks for the compliment, but I would have to say DJ-Chris, Diablo II, and Nubius are the most helpful, but thanks.

Now are you considering getting and AMD processor or sticking to a P4?

Ok, like I said, for $170-180 you can get a 3.0 Ghz P4 off of www.newegg.com
