i have a dell dimension 4600 and lets say its going in the garbage. im making my own computer from scratch and it will be upgradable in the future. so i recommend building your own and staying away from Dell when you want to customize in the future.

also i can send you my own computer specs that im working on. just the base but has no net card or sound card cause i dont need it. its $925 if you are interested.

sorry for the late reply. the power supply i wanted is no longer available.. and the system has no sound card or network card because i dont need those things. you may have to tweak some things to your liking like the graphics card. go to tiger direct and find a PSU thats compatible and a sound card if you need one. and you need a CD/DVD drive. also check out neodudes because his is very good. mine is more pointed towards gaming and costs a bit more.

I really like that build. Thanks! I'll probably end up getting 2 sticks of Ram though. And could you suggest a power supply to go along with that?

Here is what I would recommend going with:



DS3L: You get a P35 chipset, which will do the E3110 justice unlike the Nvidia boards, these are one of the best budget P35 motherboards.

E3110: Identical in every way to the E8400, apart from the tighter VID range which means you'll get a better chance of getting a good chip (unlike me)

HD 4850: Awesome, for $199 you can have a card that beats the 9800GTX and even is snapping on the heels of the GTX 260 which is $400, you can't go wrong with one of these and two in CF is faster than the GTX 280 which is $650.
Here is a review if you don't believe me: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/HD_4850/
