I got the prices from canadacomputer.com

They're all seperate parts...but this is the cheapest way to do it. Most bang for your buck. You skip the manufacturing and sales cost that would come from buy your computer pre-made.

If you let me know what parts you already have, I can recommend some upgrades if that's all you need.

And I'd build it for ya if you want.

Is a notebook out of the question? They're not as cheap, but they'll do what you said you need, and they're very practical.

you can get it anywhere...

Summit has it for for about $150

but you cant use any motherboard, even if your board uses DDR RAM, if you want to use 333MHz your probally not able to, unless your board is really new

i know
but still
haha

i could pull some funny jokes here

like ...

What do you have that's half the size and twice as fast as me?

Or ..

My "RAM" is twice the size of yours and takes it's time "processing" things.

i'm probably going to stay with sdram for now

trade-in value isn't great to go from sd-ram to ddr/rd as far as i know
