That is contrary to me, I like Intel, but AMD is great too. I'll post in a sec.

yeah, but he wanted something fast, if he is overclocking then he should get atleast PC3700, but PC4500 is $135 for 512MB so it won't make that big of a diff if he objects then we switch

I probably won' be overclocking as I understand it can damage your hardware or be unstable, but I'm just going to do whatever you guys think.

What is the COST factor here. Megadeaths route will hit the WALLET.

Ok, then forget the DDR566, and get standard DDR400/PC3200...it was just a suggestion. You can downsize the hard drive and pick the optical drives you NEED. Secondly, it depends on what kind of things you will use this for. Will you be gaming? If you will then you need a better card. If you won't, then even a GeForce PCX5300 will get the job done or an X300 SE for that matter.

NO OFFENSE, BUT IT IS MEGADETH...NOT "MEGADEATH"! Just call me Mega instead, I like that too.

Wasn't meaning to offend, Mega! The poster needs to lay out everthing to get a proper recommendation. If he just does the net and e-mail and a little gaming the system you put together is overkill and a waste of money.
