    Here, in US dollars, is what the system would cost if I were to build it myself. All prices were shopped for and will slightlyy vary. I mostly buy online, ebay, newspaper rebates or at computer shows. I prefer the Pentium over the AMD...

    Pentium4 2.0gHz $167.00
    Gigabyte motherboard $76.00
    60GB Western Digital HD $60.00 (after rebate)
    Liteon DVD rom 52x $30.00
    1.44 floppy $5.00
    Tower cabinet w/500watt $35.00
    17" Monitor Flatscreen $150.00 (See price)
    Multimedia Keboard $7.00
    Optical wheel mouse $8.00
    Nivida Gforce 4 mx 440 128 meg With s video tv-out $65.00


    Total $603.00 USD. In Canadian that is $836.728

    So you did GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I assume that you will use the onboard audio. But you need some decent speakers (w/ center bass), so add $30.00USD

    Then add $200.00 for XP Home. I can get XP Pro for $150.00USD at special computer shows.

    Nice deal, though I see an update within a year (hard drive and video card )

    Just get xp corporate of kazaa (one is pinned in verifieds, or get corporate in "verified hashes").

    A processor I&#39;d go for now is a P4 2.66GHz.

    The hard drive is kind of limited as well, a 40GB is a mimimum, but others are considering 120, 160, 180 and 200GB HDDs.

    You need a DVD-ROM and perhaps a CD-RW.
    The video card seems fine .

    the mx440 is ok, but in benchmarks, it&#39;s actually on a par with a geforce 3 (like i have)
    it&#39;s good for general use, but for gaming it&#39;s a little weak
