If I were to build it now, it would be a P4 1.7ghz 5 pci 4 ddr, 512 mb DDR ram @ 300mhz, GeForce 4 Ti 4200 64mb(got 2nd place), Standard Sound card, CD Writable/readable 24x12x40, Aluminum Case w/ power supply @ 500w, But i wont be building it until another 6 months, and as technology improves, Prices should drop, so depending on the situation then things should change. Anyways right now that would be just under 600 dollars with shipping for all parts and cables. Monitor and etc. external devices i already have. Anyways, any advice?
