Cosair 1gb DDR-400 $83.00
What ever GPU you want but I would go with the
Albratron 6600LEQ - $83.00 - $10.00 Mail in rebate
Case go for anything like in the $40 range, its cheap and good.
Nec DVD-RW $40.00
sound Card: the one on the mobo is fine.

Total;
$160.00 CPU
$ 70.00 Mobo
$ 83.00 GPU
$ 83.00 Ram
$ 40.00 Case
$ 40 DVD-RW

$476 + $40 Shipping =

$516.00

Wow! Thanks a lot, I looked up the parts on that set-up and everything looks good to fit what I need a computer for.

Thanks!

BTW, what's an AMD AM2 CPU?

No Problem, Plus with PC like that you will be able to game, the 6600LEQ like all Nvidia card can be Oc'ed quite easily, and can be Oc'ed from 300/437 MHz to 400/507 MHz w/o any artifacts. And then Its just as good as the normal 6600 Non-gt that can play many a games at reasonable Frame rates.

Note: Yeah i ment the 2.0 Ghz one

Hmm, I'm browsing the cases but I'm not sure which is a good one for around $40.

I was looking at this one.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811208008

It comes with a strong PS and lots of fans to keep everything cool.

Any recommendations or feedback?

Thanks.

That's a very good case, but I hate the outer look.

That PS only comes with a 20 pin power connector. What happens if the board I have is 24 pin?

Will that make the PS useless?

You could buy a connector/adapter that changes it from 20 to 24 pin to match your mobo; or, guess ull need to find another case.

I didn't read the specs on that case too closely. My eyes jumps down to the fans because cooling is very critical. Yeah, get another case. It would be better that way. The cases I usually recommend are $100+ but probably too high for you. Great cases around that price though. Thermaltake's got some nice ones for around $75-$80. Check out some of those Aspire cases. They're pretty cheap and decent.

Aspire X-cruiser
Thermaltake Soprano
Cooler Master Centurion
Aspire X-Dreamer II
Raidmax Ninja

All decent cases under 75

Raidmax Sagitta

^^ maybe a bit over your budget but one of the best cases for its price; and could last you to your next rig; since this is a 'budget/learning experience rig'...I currently use this case
