    Want to go REALLY cheap? Get a VIA Eden M1000. They have onboard video, 6 channel audio, USB, LAN, 1394, TV out and a bunch of other stuff as well as already having a 1GHz processor on the board. The board runs about $160.

    It's a Mini ITX board. It will fit in any ATX case and work with any ATX powersupply. It is only 17x17cm in size so you could throw it into a tiny case as well if you wanted to.

    Just a though. Good luck!

    thoes look really good, i did some e-mailing to see what the prices are going to be in total, but other than that does anyone know waht one is better for this stuff, celeron or duron?
  7. for a simple workstation, i get Intel grg boards a celeron 1.7 or so, 256 meg, 40 gig box and all whole mess for well under $300

    i get the boards for about $30 new hunt around deals can be had

    all good parts, very stable and more than fast enough for web, email and office stuff:happy:
