    CASE-> Chieftech CS-601 silver
    MB -> Chaintech 7NJS ZENITH
    CPU -> Athlon XP 1900+
    RAM -> 512 MB DDR333
    HDD -> Western Digital WD800JB
    DVD -> Pioneer DVD-106S Slot-In
    KEY -> Logitech Cordless Desktop optical
    SPEAKER -> Logitech Z-340

    Not bad. Needs faster CPU. XP 2400 is a really good CPU for this machine.

    I would have 1024MB DDR PC2700 RAM, on one stick :)

    Perhaps you want an Audigy 2, it's pretty much refined Audigy.

    * smiles and shrugs *

    I'v heard both cards, whatever, it's the same thing.

    Graphics card is a good one :)

    I say your system is just fine as you have it :)

    (unless I'm blind)

    I think a price will justify some more educated answers as to whether or not you should buy it.

    Here's my opinion, if it's something like $63 dollars, I would.

    If it's anywhere near $7431.88, I'd maybe reconsider...

    Try Kingston, Corsair, and Mushkin.

    I know that RAM comes in 1GB sticks, I just don't know myself offhand where to get it.

    well shiznits...

    all told my rig costs less than that with the monitors included...

    adjusted for stircrazy's nutty theories as well...

    you don't need to go for the cutting edge unless you can afford it/need it... 512mb ram is sufficient for winxp.. can get by with 256 but 512 is enough unless you do hardcore editing et al...

    :eek: That price seems really high. Shop around and look for the best price. If you can, buy everything from the same site to save shipping and handling. I'm in the US, and bought my whole system off www.newegg.com. If you are in Europe, I don't think they ship there, but it is still a good site to compare prices.

    i know it's not cheap.. i really hate that a year ago i've been in boston(for a year cuz of my father) we should've bought a compurter there.. i mean c'mon the 7NJS Zenith costs 180 bucks here in the us it's around 225.. that really sucks everything is more expensivce here!. i bought evereything from the same shop.. i let them built it so they can just give me the case with all the stuff installed.. my father didn't trust me when i said i oculd build it on my own.. he didn't want to spend such an amount of money to see an broken CPU afterwards.. :0 wellwell.. i bought it..

    oh yeah.. pr00fx.. i really pity you ;)

    EDIT: i compared with the prices at newegg and was shocked it's $1,039.99 there

    Maybe you could order it off newegg, get it shipped to someone in the US, and then they could send it to you..where ever you are.
