  1. Does 3dspotlight not build a monthly machine showing prices anymore? I found a link to one and it is showing the AMD 1.33. It was written in 2001.

    I'm sure this will get updated when the staff get a chance. With the site updates, forums changes and server move there has been a lot going on behind the scenes.

    My personal choices for a AMD system would be:
    • Cooler Master ATC-710-GX2 $108 (personal preference)
    • AMD XP Barton 3000+ $600
    • Thermalright SLK-800 $38
    • ThermalTake SmartFan II $17
    • Abit NF7-S nForce2 $120
    • ATI Radeon 9700Pro AIW $420
    • 2x512mb Corsair XMS Cas2 PC3500 2x$177
    • 2x 120GB MaxtorATA133 8mb cache (DiamondMax Plus 9) 2x$139
    • Pioneer DVR-104 DVD-R/RW Drive (BLACK) $203
    • Enermax EG651P-VE 550W PSU $156
    • Logitech MX700 Cordless optical mouse $62
    • Logitech BLACK Elite Keyboard $36
    • Samsung 191T Silver 19" TFT $812 (Response times are starting to make these a viable alternative to CRTs)
      TOTAL: $3202 (~£2000)

    Personal choice of an Intel system would be:
    • Cooler Master ATC-710-GX2 $108 (personal preference)
    • Intel P4 3.06Ghz $583
    • Thermalright SLK-800 $38 (or SLK-900 $46 as mounting holes are available)
    • ThermalTake SmartFan II $17
    • Gigabyte GA-8INXP $255
    • ATI Radeon 9700Pro AIW $420
    • 2x512mb Corsair XMS Cas2 PC3500 2x$177
    • 2x 120GB MaxtorATA133 8mb cache (DiamondMax Plus 9) 2x$139
    • Pioneer DVR-104 DVD-R/RW Drive (BLACK) $203
    • Enermax EG651P-VE 550W PSU $156
    • Logitech MX700 Cordless optical mouse $62
    • Logitech BLACK Elite Keyboard $36
    • Samsung 191T Silver 19" TFT $812 (Response times are starting to make these a viable alternative to CRTs)
      TOTAL: $3322 (~£2080)

    Of course this is a dream machine where money is no object really ;)

    All prices taken from www.pricewatch.com or www.newegg.com since I am not familiar with US prices
