Ok, this is what i have so far:
This was the only pci 2.0 mobo i could find for AM2. I figured it would be a good idea to go with pci2.0 for future expansions
This seems like a god deal for the money, what do you think?
I already have a case, a dvd burner, and 1 250gb hard drive. I was thinking of getting a 10gb 10k drive just to install windows on, do you think that would speed things up? That would be in the future though...
As for ram, how much of it should i have? I was thinking 1 $40 2gb stick... but i dont know much about ram, what else is there to it besides the size?
I really need help with the video card, i am totally lost with that... i dont understand how theres some HD3650's with PCI2.0 at the same price as some x1950's that came out a long time ago???
So i am up to $420... i still need ram, a video card, and a power supply. Or should i consider a different processor/motherboard?
