Lightbulb This build?

Does this look like a good build?
What better processor would be compatible?

Default Re: This build?

That dosnt look to bad, though i would change the whole thing if i where to build it for 650$

i would...
get a AMD quad core CPU
better Power Supply,
faster DDR2 ram, if not DDR3
and either a 4850/4870 1GB. DX11 isnt going to be mainstream as they say... IMHO

Could you elaborate some on processor, motherboard and video card?

No gaming. Just streaming video, music, internet, burning DVD's and Cd's...etc...
I have always had a computer or 2 since the late 80's.
I Just put in a new processor and video card in a store bought HP that I got in November and it has greatly improved the performance.
So as a hobby, I thought I'ld build a computer. Of course the way things are economically, I have a limited amount of money to spend.

I like to learn new things.
