    ...dude! that is one frickin sweet budget build! I mean, you spent money in all the right areas and held back where you needed to...any ideas on future upgrades? lol. I dont think it would hold up to a good round of COD2 though... :p

    Shipping was about $40.00 because I got some of the PC from a computer show. No upgrades for awhile because this computer is used by my girlfriend for surfing the web and for her digital camera.

    I must say very nice build for a budget...I was lucky to find a lot of deals and rebates for my computer and only spent $800 (that was 6 months ago). I was going to go with the same mobo, but decided not to since its AGP.

    The FX5200 would be an area that I would look into upgrading....I owned a 5200 late last year and while it held it's own...it will not handle the demands of newer games (call of duty 2 )

    Nice budget build however!!!

    The video card is nice. Works nice. It has a heat sink instead of a fan so it's a little more quiet.

    Nice, I would have gone with a sempron though.

    I wanted a little more performance than the sempron could provide. I'm not a big fan of celerons, durons, or sempron's.
