When I saw the price on the video card I was like

There are 3 bids currently on the video card and 4 days left for the auction.

The processor I got outbid the currenty price is $8.86 CDN. What's the most you would go on a AMD Athlon XP-M 2500+ Barton with good stepping?

I tried a differnt battery in my AK77 Pro A and it works. So armed with that an XP1600+ lets see what I can do.

So far here is what I have for this build.

AMD Athlon XP 2200+
Gigabyte GA-7VAX VIA KT400
ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128 MB 256-Bit
1GB Kingston HyperX PC3200 DDR400
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE PCI 7.1

I looked at SKYMTL's Budget round up and I was thinking about getting the Sparkle Power SPI ATX-400PN 400W

What is your opinion on this?
