AMD Athlon XP 2500+ "Barton", 333 FSB, 512K Cache
Arctic Silver 5, 3.5-gram
Thermaltake SILENT BOOST
Corsair Value Select Dual Kits 184 Pin 512MB(256MBx2) DDR PC-3200

Well, I would like to spend less than $700, but possibly $750 if it is worth it. And another question, on that Infinity case, it has room for 3, 60mm fans; and 1, 120 mm fan correct? And it comes with 2, 60mm led fans?

Is $750 enough to cover all of that? But yeah; its a good Low Budget PC, I'm just not too sure whether that is enough to cover even a Low Budget PC?

Thats perfect for games, dont knwo what you crazy idiots are thinking. Just get a nice cooler and overclock the 2500+ to a 3200+. And its fit for anything.

This is presuming a guy who thinks that a 2.2 will play Doom 3 can Overclock a Processor that far.
