Good Gaming PC

Yeah just fix that hard drive. In terms of the video card, the 5700 should do you fine. If you have the dosh lying around though, go for the 5900 so it will last you a bit longer.

 

Everything seems to check out, that CPU could be overclocked easily too ;) , well, thats what I would be thinking when I bought a CPU like that!

Since your board supports DDR-PC3200 I would get 2 sticks of 512 for a total of 1GB, if your going with 512MB than for that board and to take adavantage of the DDR you would want 256MB x2 sticks.

 

Something else to "consider" is too look into PCI-X mobo's and video cards (nvidia). afaik, it's the future. It wouldn't hurt to get a card w/ 256MB of on-board memory for the future too.

 

Damn computers, you buy the crap and it is obsolete in 2 months. :lol2:

 

Look into a SB Live card.
