MONITOR RESOLUTION: currently using a 24" lcd @ 1920x1200
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Only looking for cpu, mobo, ram and video. Because of budget probably going with an onboard gpu. But open to suggestions. The OS needs to be in the budget as well as taxes, which leaves around $320 for components.
Currently running a P4 2.0g with ATI 2600hd video.
Thanks for suggestions.
The graphics card itself still can not drive your 1920x1200 at highest setting but it should do well on lower ones. Once you get more money, you can buy a 2nd card for crossfire to max your settings for your monitor.
Thanks for the ideas. I ntice the first system had a 64bit os, are both these cpu's 64bit.
Yes, these are the only parts I am looking for, I have a ocz 700w psu, large ultra case, and over 1tb of sata disk space.
