it fin except for the graphics card but seeing that u don't game it should be fine, u could probably just use onboard if u aint planning on gaming but it might be a bit **** for videos but w/e but still looks good XD

well due to the $650 budget I will stick with the current video card....There are many great reviews and it seems to play a lot of games on high settings and others on medium......Good enough for me...Here are the final specifications
Abit AN8-Ultra
Seagate 80GB serial ATA150
AMD athlon 64 X2 3800+
Radeon X300SE 128MB
Patriot signature series 1GB (2x512)
LITE-ON black IDE cd burner
Samsung black IDE 1.44MB floppy drive

I'm ordering this tonight when my dad gets home...so speak now or forever hold your peace!!!

That looks quite good.

I'd take a way bigger hard drive, but if u don't need lot's of space then there is no point. But 80GB is so little.

looks nice. depending on what you do, 80 gig might not be enough. i dont know much about vid cards but it sounds nice.

and the soprano i dont REALLY like but it is better than my junk case.

If you get a newer graphics card can buy BF2, you will have something fun to do in your spare time.
