My computer is getting kind of dated! I have a 1.3ghz p4 with 384mb of rdram(yes the 16bit stuff). With a 40 gig hd. It is a older compaq presario. It has an ATI 9100 128mb gpu in it. I have a 21" CRT. M-Audio sound card. I have a brand new dvd burner. I would like to get a new system. But that shit isn't going to happen for $360 bucks. I could put some on it though.
I'm defending my home with a martial art: Klik-Pau
get an amd 64 3000+ and a mobo that supports it with an agp slot, and 512 mb of corsair value ram from new egg. all within your budget, and you can use the rest of your equip, and upgrade your vid card later. you will be very happy

yah, that is just to get him where he has memory that will work with the board/proc tho. that proc will last you a LONG time, you can get better memory and oc the hell out of it, and upgrade your board to a nforce4 board and get pci-e possibly with sli and get some pretty bangin video cards.
try not to create static when putting it together, like dont intentionally rub your feet on the carpet or run a balloon in your hair while building pc its pretty easy, shit only plugs into one hole, just dont stress or bend any parts. the cpu heatsink will take some force, but just try to keep it even for the boards sake.
