I can't get them to commit on price...but around 700.00.

He still needs OS and some little stuff.[/url]

Might need to review the tags on your post Smile

Trying to find the URLs in your tags, I was with you until the Radeon X800XT. I would not purchase a new video card that lacked pixel shader 3.0 at this point. How about GeForce 7900GT or Radeon X1800XT instead? The 512MB version looks appealing.

I'm not a big fan of Aspire power supplies. I do like Seasonic. For about the same price as that Aspire, how about this 400-watt unit from Fortron Source? This inexpensive 400-watt PSU will get the job done, but its 80mm fans will be noisier than the 120mm fans in the other power supplies.

I would not bother with the combo optical drive. Get a DVD burner to do everything.
$36 Samsung SH-S162A DVD burner
$47 LiteOn SHM-165H6S DVD burner with LightScribe

I assume that your friend is planning to use this system for gaming? Did he consider the Athlon64 X2 3800+ ?

If you are looking for a pre-assembled system, Hewlett-Packard builds some nice Athlon64-based PCs that lack only a decent PCI-Express graphics card.

There are ways to make the BBCode tags easier, if you need them.

Should this thread really be in the Mods & Ends section?

Yes i agree with Engineer.

That AMD X2 3800+ is nice. I am only running a regular 3800+ and it runs great.

I would not go with the X800XL either as i used to own one of these cards. I would go with the new revisions out to get the most up to date features.

The cards he mentioned are all great cards.

This post is what happens when you are trying to post while 3 people are talking to you about two different subjects and then your wife comes and asks you what you want on pizza and do I want a beer.

Well did you at least get beer with your pizza? If you did than you got the most important part right.

Pretty much what I said but with a look...to which I got..."are you looking for a flicking?"
