Hi everybody. I'm looking for your advice on the best mobo/cpu/ram combo for the price/ bang for buck. Mainly I just use the pc for games.
Thanks for you input

Well, you could post what you're running now. But not knowing what you presently have, I could make some educated guesses about what might be good:

Abit NF7-S - ~$125 (includes excellent onboard audio and NIC)

Athlon XP 2400+ - ~$110 runs at 2 GHz, more than enough for today's and tomorrow's games, also overclocks quite well as you can see in my signature. ;)

Corsair XMS RAM - $180 for 2x256 mb sticks. This stuff is about the best in the business.

If you want to compare products and prices, go to www.newegg.com They even include pictures so you can see exactly what you're getting.

I was just on newegg and they have the Athlon Barton 2500+ CPU for under $130. You're not going to find a better price on a better processor. The 2500+ is probably the best bang for the buck CPU on the market right now.
