Let me see how this works. All of this comes to $658.86

Case: Antec 200 Mid-tower
Power Supply: Thermaltake 430 Watt
Motherboard: ASUS P5Q SE P45 Motherboard
CPU: Intel Pentium E5200 2.5GHz
RAM: 2x1GB Kingston HyperX DDR2 800
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 160GB SATA
Video Card: MSI 8400GS 256MB 64-bit Video Card
DVD Burner: LITE-ON 24X SATA Burner
Monitor: ASUS 19" LCD Monitor
Keyboard-Mouse Combo: Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
im glad to see that someone opted to suggest more RAM
1 GB just doesnt cut it any more
and your going to use 64-bit, so dont you need to get 4GB+ ?
if your only going to stop at 2 GB then you can save some $ and get the 32-bit version of W7

If you think you can, you CAN! If you think you cant, your right.

I dont know, DO i need 4gb+ for 64bit? To be honest i wasnt sure if i did or not.

There isnt much need to have any more than 2gb in reality, in this system, I cant imagine much work or heavy workloads hardly, if ever, So may opt for 32-bit to save some money - ty for the tip.

I can probably get his case / tower and cut $30 off the job, allthough im unaware of the specs, and its about 10 years old.. I guess its probably not going to be feasible to build the computer around the old casing, just to save myself $30 ish..

doesnt windows 7 come with both a 64-bit and 32-bit DVD in the same box? you dont need 4GB to have 64-bit. i dont understand why anyone would go with 32-bit nowadays
