To me this puter would be a good start for building your first computer.

It has integrated video, and integrated sound so all you will have to buy is a hard drive, maybe a dvd-rw and a windows XP cd and you have a basic computer to work with up and running. A WD 200 gig hd is $80, the NEC DVD-RW costs $40. The XP cd costs $90 for SP2 home edition oem.

The computer can be later upgraded with a Nvidia 6600 or 6800 PCI-E vidoe card, Creative Audigy Sound card, a Sata hard drive and maybe a regular prescott P4 processor. The upgrades would cost up to around $500 more over the basic puter but the basic setup would cost around $360-400. That is not bad for all new puter tower.

Heres a good website on building a computer.


Good luck to you. I hope you have as much fun as i have building computers. Frustrating at times but still i have enjoyed it.
