You could build yourself a pc and it would be the cheapest option, cause you can shop around for parts. Check out Plug & Play's website http://yesplay.com there really good for pricing

Whats the better option pentium or AMD? I know AMD is "faster" but they dont have systems up to the caliber the pentium does now. And AMDs heat like a mofo.

i have a 2400 AMD xp , and that = 2.1 Ghz i believe im not sure , i know its always lower than the number , but anyways i saw no difference running that against my 2000 = 1.7 - 1.8 Ghz , even though there wsa a 50 dollar difference , i mean 2.4 Ghz Pentium 4 Is not really neeeded , id rather go back a few steps save a couple bucks buy an extra 256 of ram or somthing , but thats ust my say

thats a great ida , always look for some hardware you can save on , a little extra cash is always good , my best computer was my emachines ( that i pretty muc hupgraded everything but hte processor and motherboard ) , just remember whan buying it though, that you can only go as fast as your slowest component , so make sure your not being slowed down to much by somthing , video cards can be responsible for taht most the time when they are not very good , but your using a wicked system

there's a store like MDG (MDG sucks) called Summit Direct. If there's one in your area, got there Smile They are really knowledable and helpful and you can customize your computer, including whether they just supply you with the parts of whether they build it.
