    Hey. I'm looking to upgrade my brothers' computer. I need a new mobo, CPU, and some RAM modules.

    Now, I know I can go to newegg myself and look there, but I also know that you guys are pros when it comes to this, and I'd like the best bang for my buck. So I'd appreciate it if you could help me find the best deals out there (from newegg).

    Ok, so for mobos, I prefer AMD-based socket 939 (please no AM2--just 939) and exactly 1 PCI-E x16 slot (for later upgrading). For now, they'll be using onboard video, though, so make sure that that's at least mediocre.

    For CPU, any 939 Athlon 64 will do.

    And finally, for RAM, just please have it be compatible with the mobo. No more than 512MB is needed (again, at least just for now. 3-4 sockets for RAM is preferred).

    In total, I don't want to spend any more than $225 including S&H, excluding mail in rebates.

    Thanks, dudes.
