  3. Cross, are you in need of an OS also? If so, then you're trying to really build a $400 PC and that's probably not going to happen.

    You could do something like this

    Or
    (Vista though)

    and add a diff PSU and GPU to match.

  4. Who is Batuchka? I'm not Batuchka.
  5. Batuchka is another member of Tom's forum (another Addict)

    Batuchka has posted some good build advice and jtt283 was just referring to one of his post from another thread that answered your build needs.
