Default Building for a friend, comment.

I'm building this for a friend, he doesn't know much about computers but we worked together and made this list. Keep in mind his budget was around $700-$800, I think it came out to $732.98, without a monitor keyboard mouse and XP.

Comment please

NO NO NO NO NO and NO some more... what is this PC for? I mean, for $800, you can build a SCREAMING AMD system with PCI Express GPU that can slaughter that measly Radeon 9800Pro.... its called the 6600GT and it eats the 9800XT for dinner for around $175... As far as that CPU goes.... the 5xx series pentiums had too many power leaks and they ran WAY TO HOT! Do not use those for the love of God.... Get an AMD Athlon64. I am going to go to bed, but tomorrow I will post a part list for you to order off newegg. It will double outperform that current setup for $50 more. LMAO! Let DarkBlade Computers LLC do its business. LMAO, first time no charge eh?
