for the whole thing?

Never mind..for RAM + case... right?

Why did you go for such an old socket.... even new stuff can be cheap

Cheapest RAM I'd recommend is already $57.99
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820141413

Case.. check if your local shop has some crap cases... recently here they had like Compaq cases for like $5.... they were ATX even!

Case online, easily costs like $15-$20 shipping..that's a waste...
