Okay, got the parts on order. She gets an AMD
Athlon 2 dual core 3.0 GHz and 4 GB DDR-2 1066. Her case is green and black with a 530W PS. A SATA DVD/CD burner
and a 23 inch full HD monitor. Thr HD is a 500GB SATA and graphics provided by an ATI 16 x 2.0 with 512MB DDR2. It'll take
less than 30 min. to put together and hours to load all the stuff. She will have to be wireless but I have a relay upstairs
that works fine. So now, every desktop we and our son own, I built myself. If you already have all the software, it's the
only way to do it. Much berrter machines at a lower cost.

Now my son wants the wife's laptop to use
as a programming computer. I wasn't planning to build her a new one until I started getting paid extra for working the summer.
Of course, she said ,"sure, go ahead, take it. Dad is going to make a new one for me anyway." Oh well, that's what
the reserve in the bank account is for. So, Newegg here I come.
