Hi,

I'm looking to upgrade my existing PC-133 (yikes!) system to something newer and affordable, keeping under ~$350.00 and reusing my existing AGP card (ATI 9700 PRO). I'll be doing some moderate gaming, playing some of the games I haven't been able to play yet (Doom, FarCry, HL, et cetera). .

I would appreciate any comments about the following build. I'll likely add more RAM in the future, as the board has four slots to accomodate this.

Here is what I am currently looking at::

EPOX EP-9NDA3I $60.00
San Diego 3700+ $90.00
OCZ 512x2 $115.00
FSP 450W PSU $55.00

Thanks for any suggestions or comments you would be willing to make,

Jon

I'd go with the Asrock 939DUAL-SATA2 instead, but I cant seem to find it anywhere, hehe. So, what you've got listed is good.

You could also go with a conroe setup if you had about a bit more cash:

$184 - Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz
$57 - ASRock 775Dual-VSTA Socket T (LGA 775) VIA PT880 PRO
$95 - WINTEC AMPO 1GB (2x512MB)DDR2-800 3AMD2800-1G1K-R
$42 - FSP Group AX400-PN 400W
=====
$378 + tax and shipping
