    Well, for $400 you can get a much better system than the crap TigerDirect sells.

    I would recommend this:

    AMD Athlon XP 2500+
    ATI Radeon 9550XT
    512 RAM
    80GB WD 7200 RPM HD w/8MB cache

    Let me link you:

    uh, for the $50 that case is, you could get a better case with a sparkle PSU. I had 2 cases in my store that were under $50 w/sparkles...

    I'd save up an extra $100-150 and then go with an Intel 320 and Intel mobo.

    Fuck that shit! Intel CPU's are nothing but space heaters. So much money for so little performance!

    please STOP talking. you are SUCH a fucking dumbass! The Intel 320 is an awsome budget chip.

    Wait, my bad, I thought the 320 was a P4?

    I'm sorry. The Celeron D kicks ass, everyone knows that! I'm not nearly as up on the Intel chips as I used to be.

    Also, flaming is more of a dumbass thing to do :). This is an old post, so I won't report you for this. Next one, yeah. You gonna get banned!

    oh yea, you gonna report me and you think I'll get banned? that is rather laughable. Technically, you're the one threatening me.

    Bottom line, I contribute knowledge to this forum, and you simply spread misinformation.

    If you can't take getting flamed, then at least LOOK at what I say before you say something like the 320 is a bad chip.
