wow thats a good pc arrix. that would definitely multitask well. that's actually an overkill. you absolutely need that processor?? and 4 gigs of ram? thats a whole lot. are you like going to play 2 games at once? this computer would kick butt, but do you really even need this much power?
my next build (once i get the money, i only have $600) is going to have
(i'll probly wait for AM2), but for now i'm going with an
Athlon X2 3800 - i want to multitask to a somewhat good degree, but not as much as that zeon, and i want to game pretty well, so this processor is good
2 GB ram
NForce 4 mobo
Geforce 7600gt - i don't want the absolute best video card now, because once dx10 comes out i'll upgrade
that PC seems fine for me, i don't need to post the newegg links because i don't feel like it
the whole pc depends on my budget. hopefull I get a job, if I don't i'll get something like that.
