Im looking to buy a new computer...
something with these specs:
1.4 Ghz AMD or P4
256 MB Ram
20GB HD
CD RW
16x DVD
Everything else can be minimal (video card, speakers, I don't want a monitor)... basically, I want a barebones system with the above "necessities". Ill do the other stuff myself.
Can anyone recommend a reliable website that can provide this type of "barebones" system? Thanks in advance!

I get most of my parts from either NewEgg or Mwave . Both places have good prices and good service (shipping is decent for the most part). I know for sure that Mwave has barebones systems, and I'd guess Newegg does too

I've also used Mwave with great success. I would try ubid.com as they are an auction site and you might be able to get good pricing, if cost is an issue. Further, try pricewatch.com to find out what people are asking for components.
Good luck,

I second Newegg. I just purchased an Asus A7M266 mobo from them. They have some of the best prices I've seen. If you're looking for a place that builds barebone systems for you then try cyberpowerpc.com. You can custom configure a pc however you want. I got a barebones system from there back in December.

Try www.pricewatch.com
If newegg.com is close to the best price I usually go with them since, as others have said, they have never let me down. But I have never had a problem with any of the vendors on pricewatch.

i will add another vote for both www.newegg.com and www.mwave.com both are great places and will service you well. BTW GET THE FOLLOWING:
AMD Athlon 1.4Ghz
Epox 8KHA KT266 DDR Board
256MB PC2100 DDRRAM
Pioneer 16x DVD-ROM
Plextor 16x/10x with BurnProof technology
All of this for under $700! And thats one smoking PC.

Kelley B, where can I get that system? I checked both sites you mentioned, but I got a feeling I could look forever and not find that same system - what a deal!!
