hey guys thanks alot for the info, I've already learned somethings.
theres a few things I don't think I said though.
1 I planed on using windows Vista
2 don't nead a video card at the moment, so count it out of the $1000 build.(same goes for cd/dvd drives)
3 I would like the option of intalling 4 Gb of ram, but i'll be going for a year at least with just 2, I may never even put 4 in, but I'd like to be able to.
4 Im aware of the GHZ's not meaning much, but I didn't think I could afford a dual-core, guess i was wrong:P
5, don't need a mouse key board or moniter,( I could fill a room with all the computer parts I can get my hands on, just to bad most of its dated:( )
6 320 gB for $95? ok you sold me. (btw though you can get 40GB anywhere and 80's, hell even walmart sells em for $40)
I have some more questions though, whats wrong with the 2 512 meg V cards? I guess i could save up and buy then both at once, and I know that most of the games out now, they'd just be sitting there. what if 2 years down the road(after the build) 512 isn't enough anymore, and im stuck behind everyone else? what Im saying is im WAY tired of buying a new computer every 3 years.(and its worth nothing either). I'd like to make a computer that will last me awhile. ya its probly a dream but i like over kill, just the way i am.
On to the next question, RAM, I know some aren't as good for gaming as others, but how do you tell? brand? FSB? DDR2? single channel?(if they still make it). And whats the best kind? I don't totaly understand how ram works, but I have 1 GB and it totaly sucks, my other computer has 512(same comp diferent ram) and can do so much more at once without slowing down.
Video cards #2, ok mabye 1GB of video card is overkill, but i'd like the option, I'll start with my old card(its pretty new) buy a 512 in a few months, and if i ever need more sell the 512, and buy 1GB of the lastest cards. this not ok?
thats about it, Im just looking for brand names i should buy, what models ect. basicly a parts list and someinfo on those parts.( You can get anything cheap once you know what to buy, just gotta look around for the best price)
Thanks alot for the help alpha, and any Imput would be great. Im gonna check on some of those parts now detox, got any idea's throw em my way.
