    nothing mind blowing, but it will be my gaming system.
    P4 3Ghz HT
    1Gb pc3200 DDR Ram
    asus P4P800 mobo
    80Gb seagate HDD
    GeForce FX5500 256Ram
    16X dvd
    52/32/52 Cd-Rw

    i think it will serve its purpose

    btw just for comparison, the system i have been forced to use for the past 2 years is as follows:

    P2 400Mhz
    300Mb Ram
    8Gb hdd
    8X cd-rom
    sound blaster live

    it is so brutally slow, i dont think i can handle it much longer

    Wow...thats a big upgrade! Sounds pretty nice.

    I built my comp...and well I got a little out of hand....I guess. Here are the specs:

    Dual p4 xeon 3.06ghz w/ht
    2 gb pc2700
    asus pc-dl deluxe
    Currently 5 hd's: 1 scsi 15,000rpm 20gb, 1 scsi 10,000rpm 20gb, 1 IDE 80gb, 1 60gb, 1 40gb)
    ATI radeon 9800
    dvd drive, cd-burner, floppy

    I think it serves its purpose!!

    EDIT: Oh ya and I'm not a gamer. They don't appeal to me.

    At one point I was running 2 websites and an e-mail server from it. But their gone now and its all mine!

    I built it for very little because I had many parts + many friends. Grand total came to around $1100. It was cool but now I am focusing on the carputer.

    Not a bad system. I would have saved some money by going with AMD (and gained some performance too ).

    Congratulations.

    back whan i was 13 and into computers to my knowledge AMD was still struggling to be as good as intel. i didnt find out it was better until it was too late
    but i think the P4 will do just fine
