Good low end card

SAPPHIRE Radeon X1600PRO 256MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card 100144L
SAPPHIRE Radeon X1600PRO 256MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card 100144L

Pros: great upgrade from my old 9600, now i can play games at resolution higher than 800 by 600. best bang for your buck u can really find a better card for under 100 buck, a most buy for some one who wants to do some gaming but doesn't have the money for higher end graphics card, over clocked to 591/846

Cons: not as much horse power as i expected, if your thinking about some serious gaming i would go for something better

Overall Review: cpu: 4ghz celeron GPU: x1600pro RAM: 1 GB generic HDD: 80 GB WD DVD buner all for under 400 bucks, new egg is really the only place to go for all your computer parts

worked great

Sunbeam PSU-BKS-480-US 480 W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: this power suppply ran great, it ran my p4 over clocked to 4 stable. i would recommend this PSU to any one on a budget

Cons: power supply short Circuited during a heavy thunder storm, thank fully the rest of the computer wasn't damaged. i would use a surge protecter with this one

Overall Review: runs hot

Good motherboard

ASUS P5RD1-VM LGA 775 ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5RD1-VM LGA 775 ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: great montherboard for overclocking, has been running my celeron stable at 4.03 ghz for months, has every freature u would need.

Cons: when i first got this board it would not boot with two memory sticks, but after flashing the bios this issue was fixed

Overall Review: north bridge runs hot when over clocked, i would recommend providing extra cooling for it

good budget cpu

Intel Celeron D 351 - Celeron D Prescott Single-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 775 EM64T Processor - BX80547RE3200CN
Intel Celeron D 351 - Celeron D Prescott Single-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 775 EM64T Processor - BX80547RE3200CN

Pros: this processor is really cheap and is fast for such a lot price point. runs stable over clock at 4.03 ghz.

Cons: only has 256k L2 cache, if your gonna use this for gaming the low cache might bottle neck the cpu, if u can afford it buy a p4 that as a larger cache

Great low end sound card

Creative Sound Blaster Live! 24bit 70SB041000000 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
Creative Sound Blaster Live! 24bit 70SB041000000 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: if you've never bought a sound c ard before then this is a welcome upgrade from onboard sound. it wount give you better frame rates in games, but it will make them sound alot better and richer. even if your not into playing games it will make listening to music or wtaching videos a whole lot better.

Cons: It does tend to get pretty hot, but im not sure if this a common thing for sound cards in general

Good controller

XFX GA-CP03-SK0200G XGear Dual Reflex Gamepad

Pros: At frist when buying this gamepad i was worried about it being cheap, but once i got it, it got rid of all my worries. It fits well into hands, button feels great, and vibration seams to work well with games that sopport it, and its dirt cheap

Cons: none
