I am on a very low budget build. Im talking $300 TOPS. I can salvage my new HP DVD Burner, DDR2 PC2700 & PC3200 if needed, Radeon 9600 AGP, 120GB & 60GB HDD (5.4K RPM, kinda old), floppy if needed. I am trying to reuse my HP a330n model case, I am not going extreme so I don't think heating will be an issue with a basic build. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
Then, on your budget, that MoBo is a good fit. There is new bios that will make it compatible with X2+ CPU's and it has the a pci 16 slot for a new videio card when you can get one. Sry if there are any typos here. Baby on lap now. PC 6400 is not too expensive right now. Buy what you can and add more later.
