Ok. I have decided to get rid of my peice of junk computer, and build a new one.
Here are the parts that i decided to put inside:

AMD Sempron 64 2800+ (Going to Overclock)
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819104245

ASRock Micro ATX Motherboard (Onboard Video - Geforce 6100)
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813157084

1GB of RAM
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820145440

250GB Hard Drive (16MB Cache)
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822144701

Case and Power Supply
http://www.tigerdire...u=TC3J-ULT31742

I was on a budget when deciding what parts to buy, and I didnt want to go too far over $400 dollars. This setup without shipping costs comes to be around $365 (Much better than buying a video iPod :tazz: ) Any suggestions about what could be improved are greatly appreciated :)

He really means one of the proper ones like the athlons, semprons arent just slower they dont have as many features, they are plodders for doing general processing in business situations. Get a venice 3000+ its not to much more expensive but is a much better cpu.

You also want to get a 939 system not a 754, 754 is obsolete and it wasnt that great 939 is alot better and there is more choice in parts for it. Also you are getting an ATX case you want a normal size ATX mobo(costs the same or less size isnt really much of a pricing factor).

Here is what you need to do.

You need to look into the socket 939 amd 64 bit cpu's and get a good brand motherboard.

The socket 939 are newer and are really nice. You need to get a decent video card also because I know later on you will be wanting to play some kind of game and with that old list you picked parts from I see no true video card. Onboard graphics really really really really, suck. Dont even try playing any new games with onboard video. It wont work for (recent) games.


Make shure you get a pci express motherboard also, even though almost all socket 939 does. Good motherboard brands are Abit, gigabyte, msi and Dfi.

You need a minimum of 1gb of ram for todays standard. :tazz:
