  1. I'm going to buy AMD Athlon 64 x2 4000+ or 4400+ 2.0 or 2.3
    going have 2 gigs of ram but upgrade to 4 later.
    240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 675 (PC2 5400)

    Why?
    I don't mean that to sound condescending, i'm just asking why you're choosing that range of AMD. Is it budget? If not, i'd seriously consider the Intel core2duo range. Much better than AMD's offering across the board.
    I don't have a recommendation on board, cos i just wouldn't choose AMD, sorry.
    Also if it is budget, you need to say, otherwise folk might spec up an almighty megabucks model that you can't afford.

    Good luck.

    k.jacko, a year ago, AMD had the best but to day they have been left way behind by Intel but this will chance again sometime in the future.
