    I'm going to build another new PC pretty soon. Need some advice on most bang for the buck on AMD CPUS. Here's the current plan
    Asus A8N-SLI Premium mb
    2Gig DDR RAM
    300G SATA 3.0 HD
    Plextor 18X DVD Burner

    I do need recommendations on a video card with dual monitor support. Probably a PCI Express card.

    Processor, I am considering AMD 3800+ venice core

    New PC is built and I am installing XP pro on it now. Looks pretty fast.
    Time will tell but 2Gig of RAM should make it zip along.

    Gotta love 2GB ram memory on Windows XP with a 4200+ AMD dual core processor. I feel like tool time Tim.

    I don't do hardly any gaming so I got the nvidia 6800 so I can run dual monitors.
