You can get standard keyboards for $10-15 in most stores. A network card will also be a requirement for some of you that have broadband, if they didn’t include one with your service.
Total Price: $1949
Well, that is the end of another system recommendation guide from Amdmb.com! I promise I’ll try to make them more common from now on. In the meantime, expect to see a special system rec guide, called the Ultimate System Guide within the next month including modified cases, dual-Athlon motherboards and LCD monitors!
Be sure to give me your opinions and suggestion in this thread of the AMDForums!!!
