omfg, there is no such thing as cheap and powerfull. if there were we would all have spl0itz systems. first i would go with a x850 xt pe pci-express (7800 gt if you want an overkill it dosent sound like you play many new games), a AMD64 3700 socket 939, a ASUS nforce4 motherboard, with PC3200 ram. get a good PSU with at least 450 watt and 20A on the 12v rail. sound card is onboard most of the time, if you want about an extra 5 fps in games you can spend 60 more bucks for a sound card, its really not worth it. it sound like you have around 1000 USD to spend, all of this will fit well in your limit. HDD is prefrence, although get an SATA drive.

A 2MB cache hard drive? Not a good idea. 8MB is enough for most users, and you could get a 200GB SATA OEM 8MB drive for roughly £55.

here is the video card you can get for really cheap, its awsome too. cant beat it for 344 bucks albatron 7800 gt. http://www.ichibanpc.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=2730 A minimum 400W system power supply (with 12V currect rating of 26A)

@reven, thats great input and a much better idea than a 2mb cache, his best bet is that when he builds he still disables page fileing.
