I pondered building another system...it's cheap as hell! I just put together a very nice P4 2.4GHz system for ~$500.
Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz Processor with 533FSB & 512KB Cache
Intel D845PEBT2 Motherboard supports PC2700 DDR333 RAM and Serial ATA
512MB Nanya PC2700 DDR333 RAM
ATI Radeon 8500 128MB DDR RAM Video Card (the original built by ATI model, not an OEM model powered by ATI)
I tell ya, eBay is great for finding deals. Take a look at this: P4 2.53GHz processor & D845PEBT2 motherboard combo for $189! Granted, there are three days left in the auction, but only one other bidder so far! You simply can't beat deals like this!
