Sweet! How much did all this set you back and where did you buy the parts from?

whole thing ran about $700, excluding the speakers, the 60GB HD and the burner, which were leftover. i also got the video card from a friend for $50, so that helped a lot. got the parts from all over...i could dig up the invoices if you want them. email me.

That's a sweet sound setup you got there. Santa Cruz + Logitechs 4.1 = awesome sound.

One things though, you might want to get a better video card if your a hardcore gamer.

Id be willing to bet it would be close though

I found some real good deals when building this one, especially the RAM, I picked those up for $62 a stick shipped price

my only big ticket item was the video card....but I had to have it, I overclocked it the third day it was installed
