Please, post what you are going to build. I will be making a Multitasking machine. Because that is what I like to do. Remember to include the total price. I just kinda want to see what you all come up with.



And yes, this is made for a personal computer. Not a server. Despite what it may look like

no, intels are far better for multitasking.

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.
