Well, it's time for a complete upgrade. I spent some time on researching, price cutting, etc., so here's the build I came up with.
A few notes: I'm using my harddrive from my current system; and I plan on overclocking the CPU to about 2.4GHz.
Thanks for your comments/suggestions!
Hmm, this has been happening for 2 weeks now. My computer will just... crash: the mouse will freeze up, I can't click on anything, it's like I'm looking at a picture. The thing is that my PC clicks when it does this. I have no idea where it's coming from and all I know it that it clicks and then...

I just aquired 3MB cable internet through Charter and I have a question.
I'm getting 500+ kbps when I download things. Is this really good speeds? To me this is not supposed to happen... as in OMGITSSOFASTIMGONNACRAPMYPANTS! I guess I'm too used to dial-up's 3 kbps.
I recently built my own computer and it runs great. I installed all the driver discs and everything. But for some reason my files got screwed up (prolly my own fault) and I re-formatted the Hard Drive. All the driver disc's worked except one, the mobo disc. For some reason my PC froze when I...
I got all the parts on one day and had it going the next day in the morning.
The motherboard came with only one spacer thingy, so I went up to the computer shop and bought 3. I also asked for a faceplate for the back. Well, the one didn't fit but the one in the box did (lol, duh, look...
