After tons of searching websites for the best deals possible, the best that I have come up with concerning price would be this website: http://www.pc-infinity.com/c/COMPUTER_SYSTEMS.html
I trust them a great deal. Free shipping and fast, reliable service. Although there may be better deals out there, I doubt it.

Good luck with your rig

I would suggest looking in the for sale section for some good deals from other members here

Also why is this in the nvidia section ?

Lanning for yourself or for people lanning with you? If it's for yourself, seems like a waste of money. Just take your current computer.

I am assuming you have a HDD and optical drive and want decent graphics, if not that would be another ~$80

You kept me busy @ work for about 30 minutes

That brisbane is awesome! Just depends on if you want the extra L2 cache in the Opty.

agreed... one post

I really liked under Customization they have:
"Install as Dual Channel....$9.99"

$9.99 to put the memory in the CORRECT SLOTS??? sounds like the best price on the interwebs to me!!!

EDIT: also notice you can select the divider line as an option on each category in the customization... I wonder how that works out?
