xiggy, if you're only going to be a moderate gamer, the 6600 isn't too bad. 128 mb of ram on the gpu is a good thing too. and it is pretty impossible to get everything for $100, but as i understand you just want the motherboard.

Well for 100 dollars, all I could cook up are these...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813135217 - Motherboard, looks quite nice. $41

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814271001 - Video Card - a bit skimpy, but on your budget...$25

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231029 - Again, not amazing, only 512MB..DDR400 though...

With an extra 50 dollars or so, you could get a little better with the video card and RAM, but if you dont do alot of gaming, that might do.

The games would have to be on low settings though, and they would have to be games which dont require much...

Hope this helps..

Yeah, 2GB RAM seems to be in fashion at the moment, in the computing world that is.

Its a nice size to have - 3/4GB RAM is just mad, and 1GB is sometimes not enough.

But if you need any more help, you know where to come.
