  12. I'm thinkin this:

    Intel P4 3.06ghz(at least) HT CPU
    Asus or MSI Canterwood based chipset motherboard
    512MB - 1GB Corsair DDR400 ram
    a pair of the WD Raptor SATA 10k RPM drives with 8MB cache for RAID 0 =)

    plus I'll have enough parts left to put together a second PC! The start of mah first home network

    I dunno. Either:

    AthlonXP2600+ (w/333FSB) and an nForce2 mobo

    or

    ATI Radeon 9700 (or 9800) Pro

    Leaning more towards the ATI card. I don't think the mobo/CPU combo will give me the most bang for the buck compared to what I have now.

    prodj88, I'll respond to your question about the Philips monitor. I checked a few reviews on ZDNet, and for the most part, the monitors got an above average review. If I were you, I would check out KDS, because I believe they are Sony Trinitron's on the inside, and they are much cheaper. But whatever you do, I would check around for reviews before you buy something.
