I currently have P4 2.8Ghz, 2.5GB Ram, nVidia 7600GS video card.
This is what I keep coming back too for the past few days:
AMD No Os Athlon 64 X2 6000 AM2
K8M890M-M DDR-2 SATA PCI-Express X16 -MBoard
1GB DDR2 RAM
80Gb SATA Hard Drive
DeltaChrome 3D 256MB OnBoard Video
10/100 Ethernet (LAN)
I have added to this config:
2gb Pc2 6400 800mhz Ddr2 Kit 2x1gb Chips
Atx Black Midtower Case W/ 400watt Ps
Total shipped is 281.71$ Their video cards were a bit pricy, so I was looking to get a 7600GT card for about 60-70$ shipped elsewhere. Keeping me under 400$ total.
Whata think? I'm not a hardcore gamer, I just like to play a driving game, or other free demo's now and then. I have a 120GB drive (non sata) for other data, and also have a 500GB USB external for other data storage. I also have a USB 2.0 external dual layer DVD burner, so don't really care if it sits on top of the case.
