I built a budget system. It's still growing, but here's what I have so far. Much of the hardware had a rebate or was specially priced (I love Fry's Electronics!):

Pentium 4 2.66GHz/533FSB CPU }
Shuttle AV49VN Motherboard } Priced at $180 for the bundle

512MB PC3200 RAM (KByte) $80

Western Digital 160GB UDMA/100 $60
7200 RPM, 8MB

Pioneer DVR-A06 DVD Burner $140

Canopus ADVC-50 video capture $200

CompUSA PCI 1394 Firewire $15

Windows XP Home Edition $88

Apex TU-124 case $47

MSI MX-440-8X AGP video card $46

Toshiba 16X DVD-ROM drive $36

Teac Floppy drive (Why???) $8

Turner Music Library $200

Total (so far): $1100

I will be adding RAM and a second hard drive, but this meets my needs for now. I am currently using the bundled software that came with the Pioneer drive (Ulead VideoStudio/MovieFactory) and it's OK, but I plan to upgrade to Pinnacle Liquid Edition.

Hi Abner,

Are you interested in selling any Turner music CDs? I am looking to buy TBM 803 - Sports if you have it.

Please email me at or reply here with your price.

Thankyou kindly,

You'll want at least 1GB for memory.
