Default Computer Gurus, im looking at building a computer...pricewatch.com

i used to be into computers but kinda fell out of them about 2 years ago and am now kinda on the backside of technology

anyways i am wanting to spend about 500 bucks on a custom built computer
i was thinking AMD 3000 or 3200 a realy nice video card, etc i dont need a monitor or operating system.

the computer will be used for business, as well as gaming and maybe video editing, definatlly photoshop

i was looking at going barebones system but it seemed that it would be cheaper for me to peice together the comp any help would greatly be appreciated, oh and i prob wont need a case either

i would like motherboard suggestions

thanks again

Greg

asus a7n8x or abit nf7-s $70-100
amd 3000+ ~$130 (overclock that mother****er)

Do you have ram?
Newegg is running several 2x512 PC3200 deals from $130-200 depending on what timings you want....

You can probably get a 9800 Pro or XT with what you'll have left. Maybe have a look at the x700 and Nvidia 6600 ...

My advice is that you can actually get more buying a packaged unit, once you factor in the software cost and everything.

A "really nice video card" will eat up 4/5 of that budget. You're going to have to settle on "o.k. video card".

I would avoid Pricewatch stores many of the smaller ones are quite shiesty.

Stick to Newegg. You may pay a few dollars more for some parts, but you're going to spend less money on shipping getting everything from one place, and if you have any problems they'll sort it out.
