    Im thinking about starting to save some $ so in a few months or so i can order some new pc parts and stuff like that. I use it for ps and internet browsing, sometimes i work with videos, I dont do any gaming(except modding halo1). So i was wandering how much it would cost me to buy everything but case, dvd burner, graphics card(reg. pci i think), and psu. Heres my minimum requirements.

    - 100gb hdd
    - 512mb ram(id like 1gb)
    - ok prosesser


    Remember not a gaming pc

    What i am thinking(subject to change):

    CPU:$32.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16819104245

    Motherboard:$45.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16813135190

    Ram(will buy two but for now i only need one):$33.99
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16820220171

    Video Card: Mine

    Hard Drive: $53
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16822148161

    Optical: Mine

    PSU: Mine

    Case: Mine

    Sub total: 165.96(+32.99 for another ram later)

    Dude, you cant even buy a computer at CircuitCity with those requirements anymore, standards are far higher now.

    Do you play games? If you dont, just buy a computer at CircuitCity. Since Computer Companies have started to use Aftermarket Proprietary components, they have gone up alot in terms of quality.
