well, it will be mostly for the "average tasks"
web browsing, word processer, AIM, email...
watching movies, recording(saving) my video recordings, listening to mp3's, lookin at my dcam pics...
playing some games... sims2, civilization4, rollercoastertycoon3...

i was estimating that i would spend about $700. give or take $100.

it would be:
$200 for this mobo/cpu
$100 for ram... 1gb or more
$70 for a video card... maybe 256, most likely 128mb
$70 for a hdd... sata 80gb? idk
$40 for a case/psu... nothing too fancy
and some other stuff.


edit: oh yeah, im buying this to make my own computer eventually, but till then, i will be using this mobo/cpu to replace the one i currently have in my cmoputer. i also need it to play some games... my current setup is too weak. so instead of buying a crappy graphics card for my current stuff, i would rather buy a mobo that i can upgrade later. i hope that makes sense.
