  1. PCI-express Asus A8N-E S939 Athlon 64 3500+ S939 OCZ 1GB PC3200 WD WD2500KS 250GB 16MB SATA II Feel free to make other suggestions.
  2. Hey guys... I'm trying to build the most economical computer for my mom and younger bro's (still in school). I know my bro's would love to play some games as well. Now, keep in mind, I have a budget... I simply want the best card for less than say 175 USD. All help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance! PS: I was thinking of something along the lines of a 7600GS 512MB... can you guys recommend something better for the price?
  3. You know what... it really doesn't [email protected]#$'in matter which card is better and by how much. Hey, if someone came up to me and said want a 7900 or a 1900? I wouldnt even give a damn what version it is. Both manufacturers have been around for years and both companies produce superb graphics cards no matter which company is your favourite. Sure each brand has it's own flaws, but regardless, both will make your games run so much more seamlessly. Take me with a grain of salt... that's just my 2 cents. Bored, jealous, and evnious, - Goldfires.
  4. Yeah, I know of them both. As well as A-power and many others... etc. I'm not sure what to do now. All the reasearch I did on my parts list was with newegg.com and i just realized they ONLY mail to USA . Gonna have to reconsider what parts to use now. Blah... that monitor was a great deal too
  5. you guys don't understand. I have a budget... a video card doesn't fall into that budget, especially considerning that its only for school work and browsing the web (a priority). the onboard video will do fine for now.... till mom can afford that x800 gto 2 (not a priority). Then it will be ready for gaming. About the MoBo. It's really not a bad board. Many people actually buy this board and put their performance parts in it. Why? I have no idea. For this instance though, I'm trying to build the best bang for my buck. And I don't have a lot of bucks
  6. here's what I've got so far... BIOSTAR TForce6100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...82E16813138264R G.SKILL 1GB (2 x 512MB) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820231027 AMD Athlon 64 3000+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16819103537 TOTAL: $246.20 (USD) / $284.28 (CDN)
  7. ASUS A8N-VM CSM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16813131570
  8. I've done a lot of research. At first I was going to go with an Asus board, although, after reading tonnes of reviews, it was brought to my attn that there are just too many flaws and a lack of overclocking features. I think I might go with the Biostar... Any other suggestions? - Ryan
  9. Once again people, onboard video is a MUST! I do really appreciate the help though.
  10. I appreciate the attempt to help, although, this MoBo does not have onboard video. Please try again Also, SLI is not important to me. As a matter of fact, I'll probably never go SLI with this system.
  11. lol... no no... This computer is for my family. I've got 2 younger brothers still in school. I'm trying to help out my mom since she is totally computer illiterate and needs a computer for the boys. Oh, and for those of you making mobo suggestions, please list prices as well. Thanks, - Ryan
  12. So I want to build a system as cheap as possible! One area I'm stuck on is choosing a Mobo. There are just so many manufacturers and makes. Someone please help! I don't want to cheese out on the MoBo. I want it to be Socket 939 with onboard video and pci-express. I don't care whether Asus, DFI, MSI or whoever makes it. I do want it to be cheap though with these features. Suggestions? Thanks in advance to all who give their input. - Ryan
  13. Not interested, but that's one helluva system you got there. Why are you selling?
  14. Noticed you're from B.C.... I'm in burnaby... where bouts are you?
