APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this week BUDGET RANGE: $500 CAD

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, media playing,

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: all except cpu, mobo, video, ram & os

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: no preference, but needs to be in Canada

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Canada

PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD based on value

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe in future
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe in future

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.

Those are the only components the OP needs based on the original post. The OP is reusing their hard drive, DVD, PSU, case... Etc.

All for $322.46 CAD.

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.
