Hi all, I'm planning on building a new computer. I'm pretty computer literate, but the current computer that I have I built 4 years ago. Need to know what the current technologies are, so here's where you guys come in. I'll probably try to get everything from Newegg again. Can you give some current technologies/speeds for the following please? My needs: 1. Price about $600 total. I have DVDRW drive, but that's the only existing component I have. 2. Do a little bit of gaming (counter-strike). 3. Needs: something that'll last me a while, probably 1 or 2 GB RAM. 1. Processor: Makes no difference to me if it's AMD or Intel right now. Not really interested in 64-bit processors. Would still like to be able to run Windows 2000 on it 2. RAM: what's the current speeds? Looking to spend maybe $100 for 1GB. 3. Motherboard: PCI, PCI-X? PCIE? ummmm....little help to figure out what makes sense for general usage. 4. Video card: help here too. I don't need top end, just middle of the road one. Under $120 would be nice. 5. Is ATX still the popular form factor? LOL, god I sound old. Thanks all. I'm a heavy computer user, just not an intense one. Just a little gaming here and there.
