If your going to use this thing as a desktop system, then I would
personally go with a Celeron running on a good Intel or VIA mother
board. Get one of the cheaper mother boards with the sdr ram. Then
dump some of the money you saved into a descent Radeon and lots of ram.
In my experience this gives you the best bang for your buck. Also be
sure to check pricewatch.com for the best prices.
