For that amount go prebuilt. You will get more for your money if you go prebuilt.

hard drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148107

(stick with socket T (LGA 775) because it will take P4's, along with celerons.)


Total cost is about $380, which leaves you about $220 for the rest of the parts, so at that price it might be a squese.


Or there is cyperpower pc, where you can get a better pc for less.
