    Few things:

    1. 7.1 digital surround is overkill. Most DVDs aren't even coded for 6.1 yet.
    2. A 64-bit processor is a waste of money at this point. VERY few programs and OS's (except for some high-end server ones) are even written to use it.
    3. Is the motherboard even capable of fully utilizing all of those components?
    4. More than likely, it would be cheaper to buy all of those parts and put it together yourself. The store I usually go to charges $300 to put together a computer.

    I agree 100% with that.


    Seriously what kind of computer can you get for 300$? I want a video card worth more than that.

    well, if i needed a computer i wouldn't get that. i'd build my own for cheap. that has nearly all the best pc parts and is probably worth well over $2k. none of the parts are currently worth their cost though.

    Well, if you go to the Fry's Electronics I go to, you can get 1.2 GHz P4, 256 MB SDRAM, 40 GB hard drive, integrated everything else. The only catch; it comes with Thiz Linux on it, which is crap.

    Well, some of the more advanced games coming out his year (*cough* Half-Life 2 *cough*) would certainly benefit from the 64-bit processor.

    Though the 64's will be cheaper when the advanced games coming out, they'll most likely become standard in computers later on.

    Yes, if it's written in 64-bit program code, as opposed to the usual 32-bit (I don't know if Half Life 2 will be). And yes, I foresee 64-bit eventually becoming the new standard.

    First off, I wouldn't buy it. There's no reason yet to buy a 64-bit capable processor, and there are many reasons to avoid buying one. I also wouldn't get a 7.1 soundcard or a nVidia video card.

    However, if I had to buy one, I wouldn't pay more than US$1500.

    I have the same specs on my systems, more or less, except for the processor. AMD Athalon XP 2700 (or 2800, I can never remember) @2.1 GHZ.

    512RAM, 160 GB HD, DVD-RW and 52x CD drives.

    Price: $720.

    Make your call from there.

    True, but your are not fully utilizing your CPU. It's like buying a Ferrari with a governor that never lets you go above 55 mph, you're wasting your money.

    Okay, I see where you are coming form, but the point I'm trying to get across is why buy it now when there are few programs that can even use it, and by the time enough programs (for argument's sake, let's say half of all porgrams are written in 64-bit code) can fully use the CPU, there will be more of them, and they will be cheaper. You bought that $50,000 Ferrari now and are waiting to use it, but by the time you can, there will be many others with more options that cost $30,000. Not to mention that the top speed will be higher. Exactly how much, I'm not sure. If I'm not mistaken, I think around the 4-5 GHz range heats up way too much and new cooling methods will need to be developed.
