Default carrefour pc

ok a friend wants to buy a cheap pc, now is this thing goo for it's price or are there better "combintions" for the same price?

cpu: athlon xp 2000+
mobo: unknow
ram: 256 sd pc133
gpu: ati raeon 7500 64mb tv-out
2 usb ports
17" monitor

software: win xp

price: 1099

i thought about this pc instead of the above config:

AMD Athlon 1400
256 MB DDR
Taisol CPU cooling
GeForce 3 Golden Sample 64 MB DDR
Video in / Video out
Maxtor 40 GB HD
AOpen CD ReWriter 32x12x48x
16 bit sound
Floppy Drive
Genius Netscroll
+ win xp
+ 17" screen

price: 966.94
xp 1400 ==> xp 2000 should change the pricetag from 966 up to 1099+ (worth it?)

or are there "better" configs?

First pc has got a crappy vidcard (unless he's not into gaming), sucky RAM (SDR, blah, pr0lly bad mobo too!) and quiet expensive.

Second PC sound like a second hand one. GF3 classic? Oldie!

My suggestion:
XP1800+: 100
KX-333 + 256 DDR: 125+80
17" or 19" CRT: 200/250
GF4 Ti4200: 160
DVD: 50
Seagate 60GB: 100
Volcano 7 with papst: 35
Cheapo case, mouse & keyb: 60

Total: 785 / 835 (with 19"CRT)

Very low price for a kickass GamePC (in my humble opinion). If you got troubles find low prices... search harder.

=> pricewatch on and german shops (
