Yeah, I know about them, have them bookmarked...I was basicly asking for a recommendation, because I don't know what to get from all there is on there...I see all the CPU/Motherboards and Ram stuff and get flustered and frustrated by it, because I don't know what is good, and afraid to put money on something potentially crappy. Thanks though.

I would also strongly advise you not to go less than 2g of RAM.
Yeah, got them too....all 3 sites, I just never ordered from any of them, so I wasn't sure how reliable they were...and yeah, was thinking about at least 2G, now that I think about it. Thanks
Yeah, RAM is dirt cheap. Grab an Athlon II X4 620
for $129 (decent quad-core, it's based on the older Phenom arch, I think), an Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P
for $123 (if you have a full ATX case) or a Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H
for $93 (if you have an mATX (short) case or if you wanna shave some cost off). Add a Corsair XMS3 TW3X4G1333C9A 2x1GB DDR3 RAM kit
for $59. Subtotal would be $311.68 for the full ATX motherboard, $281.09 for the mATX board (might want to go with the mATX board anyway if you're not planning to expand much; Fewer ports and what have you though, and the chipset isn't as good, but it does come with onboard video; Not sure you'd need it or not).
Wow, that flew over my head. lol
I wonder if getting a new computer would be easier...but would be pricier.
So the Athlon II X4 620 is pretty reliable then? I have no freak' clue what kinda case I have...is...well...is a case to me
I think mid size, I guess..somewhat taller then a tube monitor, a fair bit taller I think...(I'm not at it at the moment) So, I take it the Gigabyte product is the motherboard(Gawd I hate feeling stupid, when I use computers and able to use them fairly well....just don't know the terminology.) I don't think I have a short case(I recall them being called towers back in the day....dang them changing names on me
), as I said, it's just taller then a normal sized monitor.
I'll have to look them up when I return hom later this afternoon....where I have a faster connection, and I have my login info for those sites there. I can check prices and put them on my wish list and save up on the side. I figure this would buy me some time before buying a new computer.
