I think I ended up with a pretty decent set-up.

First from NewEgg.com
1) A BioStar Motherboard & AMD Barton 2500+ Bundle
Includes, cpu fan, cables, Norton Ghost, set-up cd,etc.
Cost. $147.00

M.board is M7NCD
CPU Supported: Socket A AMD up to 3200+
Chipset: NVIDIA nForce2 SPP / MCP2
FSB: 200-400
RAM: 3x 184-pin DDR (DDR 200-400)
IDE: 2x channel IDE (UDMA 33/66/100/133)
Slots: 1x AGP(4X/8X), 5x PCI
Ports: 2xCOM,1xLPT,2xUSB, 1xLAN, and Audio Ports
Onboard Audio: Realtek ALC650 6-ch AC'97 CODEC
Onboard LAN: MCP NVIDIA MAC + Realtek ALC650 PHY

One really nice thing about the board is it has access to the BIOS via Windows and Auto updates. IF I READ IT RIGHT

WestDig SpEd 80 gig w/8mg cache and 8.9ns seek.
COST $77.50

Extended 1 yr Warranty from NewEgg for Replacement above and beyond Mfg. for $13.74. (covers all pieces bought)

NEWEGG total. $237.74

Onto TigerDirect
Soyo Mid-Tower
(300 wt pwr sply,155key K.board, Mouse, Speakers.

TigDir Total w/shipping $245.70
REBATES Total ($75.00 mail-in)
After Rebates Total $170.70

GRAND TOTAL $483.44 minus REBATES.

I just need a OS now and think that I'll have a pretty quick set-up that hopefully won't crash under multi-program loads like my old 450mhz.

It sounds like you did alright, and got what you wanted. I want a whole new system, complete with monitor, speakers, OS, DVD burner, DVD rom, etc... I also want a big power supply, and plenty of expansion slots and bays. The more powerful video cards actually have to be hooked up directly to the power supply, and with the many existing and future power demands, I want to make sure I have enough power to handle it properly. I'm going to tweak my current computer and give it to my 16 year old son.

Good luck with the new equipment Jay! Let us know how it works out for you.
