  1. Ok i am new to this. And i would like to make my own machine. I do know how to assemble the computer, i do not think that i should hawe any problems there, but i do not know what is new on the market. Regarding the paralel between the price and performance. I need a comp that will run VB.NET Studio (and similar programs C++ C# J embedded C ....), and CAD (Auto, Iron) Good grafical perfomance. Also i am interested in multy output video card (multiple monitors and S video out)
    So please any advice or previous experience would be greatly appriciated.

    Personally, I would go with intel's new dual core processors (nice cheap dual core) even though i bought an AMD for myself (for gaming). You can get some pretty cheap reliable mobo's from newegg or zipzoom, and get a good productivity/gaming pc for under 700 (or less if you cut accessories). Although if you don't want dual core, just go with a HT P4. Hope that helps.

    I still think AMD is ahead of intel, even with the new release of their dual core processors. I would say go for a dual core 3800+ socket 939 on an MSI K8N Neo 4 board, or a Asus A8N SLI Premium... your choice though...

    don't forget there is now also crossfire setups to consider as well...

    PKroks has a point, considering the price drop on the 3800+ although the pentium D's are faster on single core operations (and overclock extremely well if your into that sort of thing). This article is pretty helpful on the subject.
