Hey guys,
I'm building box for a friend of mine that does income tax services.
his budget is around $500 for a new box.

I appreciate all the help you guys have gave me on my monster i've built.

But this new box only needs to run like turbo tax and ms word wtc
and I think I've picked out a good cheap combination

He wants intel - so i went with the 775 socket like mine...

Please look over these links and tell me if yall know of any conflicts
problems with chipsets etc...

Thanks in advance

You may want to check Newegg and see if the prices are cheaper there, which they normally are. If he's just using Word and programs like that then you can just use the heatsink/fan that comes stock with the processor.

Thanks for reply ...
The cpu at tiger don't come with HSF - so i know the one up to 3.4ghz will keep it cool

I've just always used tiger - and i have ordered a couple things in the past from newegg

but mainly I just wanted to make sure no one has heard of any bad results etc of any parts i picked out

all advice welcome :)

tx again
