Ok well I have been looking around for so long for a good AMD Athlon 64 Build, And I Have Found a good one for under $900 CDN And i would like to hear your feedback on this (this also DOES NOT include monitor, CD drive, ect because i have them already). The 2 places i looked for parts was www.tigerdirect.ca , and www.memoryexpress.com (local store). I order from these places because they have been rated top for canadian computer sales (or something like that :P)

So Heres The Parts And Price:

Processor- AMD Athlon™ 64 3000+: $219.95 (MemoryExpress)
Mobo- Asus K8V Deluxe: $159.95 (MemoryExpress)
Memory- Ultra 512MB PC3200: $126.99 (Tigerdirect.ca)
Case- Antec Plusview 1000AMG: $109.95 (MemoryExpress)
HD- Maxtor 80GB SATA: $94.95 (MemoryExpress)
VC- nVidia FX5700 LE 256MB: $136.99 (Tigerdirect.ca)

GST/Shipping: $74.81
Rebates: $30.00
TOTAL COST: $893.59

So what do you think?

o, sorry I forgot about the canadian price stuff. In that case yeah the compnents are pretty good. But get a different ram stick. 512 is fine, but get corsair, kingston, crucial, mushkin, ocz, stuff like that, ultra isn't that good. And DEFINITELY get a better video card among everything else. That card isn't good by any means. Even the ultra version of that loses in some benches to a 9600xt.

Ah, Canadian dollars.. I almost fell for the same thing and posted a comment saying "massive ripoff".

Good choices. The video card is pretty good. The Fx5900 XT is great, but don't buy it unless you really need it.
