Its really kinda simple, if this is a used PC yes that was way too much money and thats not my opinion thats FACT, if this is a brand new PC I am wondering Y oh Y do people buy things that are relatively expensive and then later ask about price? You could have gotten a Gateway 3200 AMD, with a DVD Writer, and CDRW with Neforce4 Video from Nvidia (and sound) AND the monitor WITH the XP cd and a bunch of other software with discs all included and other little things to make life easier as well as 512MB of Ram all for 600$ american.
Also, theres no such thing as the Ram is being used by the Video Card, because ALL video cards have there own Ram, also fact.

Via Samuel is a CYRIX Processor, it has NOTHING to do with AMD,
heres a site for you to look at. I would go right back and hit this dude in the head with it, if theres any kind of paperwork you could even sue this dude, if so I want a piece Ok?
Lastly, oh boy stories like this KILL ME, I will tell you now, a 1.4 overclocked which damages your CPU btw, is nowhere NEAR a 2.4............. He is trying to cover his butt, what he IS SAYING is that this is a little under 800 MHZ processor which he speeded up to run faster "LIKE" the bigger processor which still would mean that you are burning the processor up and you still wuld not have anywhere near the computing power of the 1.4 chip, never mind about speed. This dude is a straight up out and out crook and I am sorry to be the one to have to tell you this.
