ok

VIEWSONIC 17" E75 .25 1280X1024 $208.59 shipped...

which means I can upgrade either the ram from 256 to 512 or the geforce2mx200 32 meg to a geforce2 mx400 64meg...

I think I will go with the videocard.

definately the vid card

and in all reality, you don't need more than 256....

win9x/me works optimally w/ 256, and win2k runs like a kitten (what a ram hog ;))


of course, i've got 256ddr, so it performs like 512 :D

the goal was to make a computer for around $1000...  If we would of choose some less quality parts we would of had more money for speakers.  But  I have to say I've always just had a 3 speaker setup and have no problem whooping up in cs... played for the first time in 4-5 months 22-6!  w00t!

just wanted to give props to gideon for that list. what a cool service!
my friends (and my friend's parents, neighbors, ... pets... etc...) usually bug me about putting together a computer for them.  then i go to pricewatch.com and spend lots of time comparing prices and shipping costs, etc...

here gideon's listed good specs with links to sites! what a time saver for me! thanks!!!

{edit} i just realized that gideon posted in the first post that winterstick made the list! mega props to winterstick too!!!!
