New Computer

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about getting or building a new computer. I have never built a computer b4 but i think i might be able to manage to. Right now I am planning on buying an ibuypower pc with these specs: ASUS A7N8X-X motherboard, Amd Athlon xp 2600+ quantispeed cpu, nzxt guardian case w/ 350 psu, 512 mb ddr 333 ram, 80gb 7200rpm ultra ata-100 hard drive, nvidia geforce 2 mx 400 64mb video, nec 4x dvd+r/+rw +cd-r/rw, onboard lan and sound, and windows xp os. All this will cost me $601 without a monitor. I was wondering if anyone had any opinions or suggestions on what i should do. I would like to keep the final price under $700. After i get a computer i would like to upgrade. Any thoughts on any of this would be helpful.

i would spend $700 instead and get some pc3200 and a 9600XT .. then you wouldnt have to upgrade in the near future. ohh also why do you need a dvdr/w? i mean i wouldnt get it unless you feel that a couple cdrs just isnt enough.

I agree with Code. Get the pc3200 and radeon 9600xt. Also just to add to the cd-rw/dvd-rw thing. You can rip dvd's to 1 cd and still maintain good quality.
