I've been lurking around for a little bit and have read a bunch of suggestions on building a new computer and I think I'm ready to take the plunge. I have never built a machine on my own, even though I have a CS degree, but I am pretty confident that I can do it. Here's what I'm trying to do. I'm trying to put together a new computer for around $450 although I have obviously already gone over. I plan on porting a lot of my hardware (GeForce3 video card, sound card, and DVD drive) from my current machine which is a Dell 800Mhz P3. My main use for this machine will probably be gaming and surfing HTF. So far this is the configuration that I am looking at: Chieftec Black Server tower DX-01BD $73.00 ABIT KX7-333 Socket A VIA KT333 Motherboard $89.00 ENERMAX EG365P-VE(FM) 350W Power supply $49.00 AMD ATHLON XP 2000+/266 FSB PROCESSOR $125.00 CRUCIAL MICRON 256MB 32x64 PC 2100 DDR RAM $71.00 WD WESTERN DIGITAL EIDE HARD DRIVE 20GB 7200RPM $69.00 Cooler Master CPU FAN CP5-6J31C-01 For AMD $7.00 Total: $483.00 All of these prices have come from new-egg.com as I am to lazy at this time to really hunt down the best price. I will be sure to do that once I have the hardware nailed down. Any suggestions on things to change or to reconsider? Thanks, Chris S.
