Well my computer crapped out and I'm taking the cheap route to upgrade. I'm going to buy this barebone system right here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...2E168561100 32 Now I would need a 754 socket processor, correct? I'm trying to find one for 100 to 150 dollars, because of my budget. So far, I've got this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...2E168191034 85 There are faster Semperon processors, but I've heard that they're just not as good. So I'm assuming that that processor would work with that mobo included in the barebone, yes? Ok, now onto memory. I want to get 1 GB of memory, and the fastest speed possible for that mobo, which I'm not really sure what it is. Here's my selection so far: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...2E168202361 12 EDIT: The lower the number for CAS, the better right? I was under the impression that it's like seek time, but I may be wrong. It says no heat spreader...what the hell is this? Is it one of those metal covers that I see like on the Kingston HyperX memory? Is it better? Anyway, I noticed that it has 8X AGP, will my 4X AGP video card work with this? If not, I have this picked out: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...2E168141640 29 Will my old 20 gig HD work with this system? I hope so...I want to keep all of my information. I'll probably buy a 40 gig and run it as a slave. I've got this one in mind: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...2E168221520 23 That's pretty much it. Is there anything else that I'm missing? This is the first computer I'm going to build since '99. My old 600 finally crapped out. I'm not up to date with the new technology and such, and would really appreciate the help. If you want to contact me, I'll be on AIM on my bro's comp for a bit. My SN is GSX4gSixty3 Thanks guys.
