  1. I started ordering parts about a week ago from accubyte......Well I had originally planned on building the entire thing my self but, they said they could put all this together and ship to me for 360$:
    Athalon xp1800, Biostar M7VKQ Athlon Socket-A Motherboard which has onboard audio/video/lan, (not a gaming pc) 512 megs of pc2100 ddr ram, mid size case with 300 watt power supply, upgrade to volcano fan, And I think thats it, well they call me a week later and say the motherboard doesnt support ddr ram so i got 512 megs of pc133 for the same price :)mad: ) and there about 2 weeks late shipping it!!! :mad: :mad:
    Just thought i'd tell you about my bad XP-erience :p
