This sounds pretty good Megashawn. I found that an add-on sound card increased my overall system performance on my old PC, like you said it took some load off the CPU. It really punched up the sound over the integrated card as well.

Yeah. From the reviews, I'm afraid of the ALPS trackpads that are replacing the Synaptics trackpads on most of the newer laptops.

I am currently using a 1.72 Ghz Pentium 4 with 1024mb DDR SDRAM 133mhz, sitting on a P4B533 Asus Motherboard, with an overclocked GeForce 4 Ti4400 (300MHZ Core, 600MHz Memory),

with JET4 Heatsink and 3 80mm fans (w/ fan control for both).

My case temperature is an average of about 24 degrees on full rpm load, and 29 degrees CPU Temperature.

If you are looking for the optimum level PC for home and game use:

Athlon 64+ 3800 CPU (Socket 939)
w/ compatible Mobo (e.g. ASUS A8V Deluxe)
AGP VC: X800 PRO 256MB
etc. (sound card, monitor, keyboard, mouse, webcam, speakers)

Which would come out to be about 1500 dollars for the first three items. Good luck :)

I just placed an order for a system for a small business on a small budget. I got them a P4 2.4HT, 800FSB, ASUS P4P800-VM Mobo with built in Video, Audio, LAN, and SATA, Windows XP home ed. with CD and COA, ATX case, CD-RW 52-24-52, 256 MB DDR 400, 80 gig Samsung HD, 17 inch CRT monitor, keyboard, scroll mouse and speakers, Lifetime Tech Support, and assembly with 1 year warranty, all for $707.00 delivered. Not too bad huh!

This should work pretty good for creating PDF files, doing some e-filing and word processing, maybe some bookkeeping.
