Just Kidding!I just went to Best Buy and bought a crappy compaq 1.3Ghtz (all included) even Windows Me!!!! just one year ago!!It costed me over $2500!! and now I feel that I have an antique!!!!Where can I read about building my own System, I am completely new to this, But I would like to learn, at least the basics.the only thing that I DO know is buying and installing a couple of memory sticks 256 DDR RAM each, which I did a couple of weeks ago. now I am going to buy XP and KILL windows ME from my "antique" forever!!How much would cost to build a state-of-the-art system like that?Sorry to bother with such dumb questions, I would be happy only with a link to follow as reply.ThanksGabriel Ruiz
