Been buying the parts over 2 years, so it's probably amassed to about £1500 ($2700)

I have the crummiest pc of all

amd 2000xp+ 1.665 ghz
384 ram (128+256)
geforce 4 mx 440 overclocked but still crap
74 gig hardrive, speed: unknown/unbearably slow
old dell moniter from 90's that i got for free from a friend

The most unbelievable part is that i can play halflife 2 on this piece of (*)#@ and still get away with it. Same for cs source and battlefront 2. Didn't manage to survive battle field 2 though. Crashed on startup. I'm surprised it hasn't melted and gone straight to hell. Anyway,....I want to build my own.
Possible start of with amd 1.8 with a 6600 and upgrade to sli later.

well yah, but it's pretty crazy how far i could get with the card. Also, does anyone have any suggestions for a replacement card. I am not sure what to get because there's no pci-express, only agp 2x and 4x. I've heard i could run an agp 8x/4x on the rig but i'd like some confermations.

Yup, you can buy a agp 8X card and put it in a agp 4X motherboard, difference between 8X en 4X is perhaps 1-2%, not noticable.

Actually Gandlaf, I think the best option for him is to buy a new PC!
Heh, sure, if that's an option. You could always transfer the good parts of your computer (or the reusable parts, like the HDD) to a new one if you're not going to be using the old one anymore.

Lol, find work... That's what I'm going to do during the holidays (July-August-Sept). I saved about 1300€ to buy my comp a year and two months ago. I don't need a 3000€ rig.

I make a new pc every month, I want to keep up with the tech. Plus, I donate my old one to a charity. There are a lot of kids that just cant afford high-end pc's, so I just give them my old one. Most of the time its only 1 month old but if I didn't have time to make one, I just wait another month.

What's the reservator like? I've been thinking of buying one, but then again I think I'll need a new case first, this one's a lil bit too small.

Why didn't you get the Nvidia Geforce 7800 GTX 512 instead because it's better for gaming? Or the new ATI card that just came out that beats the one I just listed? (ATI 1900XTX)
