Thanks for the prices, but i need information on how to build a p4 as well. Does anyone know of any guides

lol it's the same way as amd is dude.

 

-mount the mobo

-put the mobo in the socket

-apply thermal paste

-seat the heatsink

-hook up all ide devices

-put in all cards (graphic card/etc.)

-hook up the buttons for the case

-hook up the power to all your devices

-power up and install windows :P

 

and isntead of the 5700LE i would get a 9800PRO and spend a few extra bucks for a LOT more performance.

The reason I suggested the 5700LE is because he said all it would be used for is surfing the internet, etc. and for the price difference between the 5700LE and the 9800 Pro I didn't think it would be worth it for what it would be used for....but Airman is right a 9800 Pro would be much better performance wise if ya wanna spend the extra money for one.
