  1. just to make sure the only change i would to change from my previous system is:

    cpu
    mobo
    video card

    i already have the memory from my old system which is 1 gig pc 3200 not ddr2. I will mainly use the system for gaming and doin homework.
    My budget is $500
  2. So you are gonna have to do socket 939 or P4..

    I'd say X2 3800+ for $150
    Some $80-90 s939 mobo, like Asus A8N-E
    X1800XT 256mb or X1900GT for $200
    OR check Circuit City for XFX 7900GT $220 AR
    This way you get very good gaming performance while getting dual-core. You can OC some if you'd like with that Asus mobo. Getting 2gb of DDR is expensive at this time. Your best bet is to ebay all your parts to save some money. Last week I won some G.Skill 2gb DDR500 for $166 so search ebay and forums(dfi-street, extreme sys, hard forum, etc.) Plus right now even the top-of-the-line DFi nf4 sli-dr is only like $90 shipped ebay

    make sure your PSu is still good....
  3. CPU:X2 - 4200+
    mobo:DFI Nforce 4 ultra
    memory:1gb pc3200(512x2) not ddr2 .This memory was from my previous system that i will be use.
    video card: x1900gt


    total = $482.98.


    the DFI board will over clock that CPU easy to 2.8. its very reliable and hard wearing.


    best 939 board ever made.
  4. wow thank you very much guys, I appreciate so much for your help.
    I might go with amd x2 4200 so it wont get obselete too much for future.
  5. I plan not to overclock, and my psu 400 watt. so hope that help
  6. we all start that way...

    let us know how it goes.
    good luck.
  7. The reason i didn't recommend the DFi mob is because you need a GOOD power supply, and good power supplies will drive him over the limit. (note:high wattage is NOT an indicator of good PSu)besides, it's pointless to get a lanparty mobo with his generic ram.
