    Now I'll have 3 :wiggle:

    I could only spend a certain amount of cash, so let me know how I did. I went a little overboard but I think it was worth it.

    Will this be alright for some gaming, as well as my usual graphics / web / application design?

    * ECS P4S5A-DX Socket 478 SDR/DDR Retail Box
    * Intel Pentium™ 4 2.00GHz 512K 400FSB S.478 Retail Box
    * 256MB DDR266 PC2100 Non-ECC Samsung
    * 1.44Mb 3.5 Samsung Floppy Drive OEM
    * 40Gb ATA100 WD 7200rpm
    * AGP Galaxy GeForce4 MX440 SE 64Mb DDR TV-Out OEM
    * Mitsumi 52x24x52 CDRW IDE OEM
    * Creative Labs Sound Blaster® Live! DE 5.1 OEM
    * PCI 56K V.92 Voice Fax Modem Retail Box
    * PCI 10/100Base T Network Card
    * ATX Deluxe MidTower (Black Front) 300W P.S.
    * Case Cooling Fan
    * PS2 Windows Keyboard
    * PS2 Scroll Mouse
    * No Operating System (Choose)

    Monitor:
    * 17" 0.20hdpi 1280x1024 Flat Futura LDF770

    I also purchased a camera:
    * D-Link DSB-C100 USB Digital Video Camera

    SHIPPING CHARGES: $63.80
    GRAND TOTAL: $850.58
