Case = Old & Free - Customized it + $15 for accessories
Motherboard = $5, Repaired CPU Pins - P5B Deluxe
C2D E4300 = $99 from ebay, NIB, @3.0 GHz
Ram = 2GB Corsair XMS2 DDR2 800 - $70 from Newegg w MIR
PSU = $35 Rosewill 500W, after MIR
Vista Home Premium = $70 - Academic version from Ebay
Hard Drive = $50 for main 200GB + $20 for backup 120GB
X850XT = $70 from ebay

It can be done if you put a little time into it Half of the parts were used, but it works as good as a new one.

What a deal on that sound card! Man, I'm jealous of that build, assuming the repaired CPU still work properly. The video card is old, but still plenty powerful for most games. Nice frikkin job on this build, man!

Please no! Spend more on that Power supply or it'll just blow up in smoke.

And I'd pick up this X1650XT (much more powerful) it's only $10 more and you'll get SM3.0 so you can actually play games made after 2005 lol

Looks good, although I would worry about the mobo... even w/ broken pins, who would sell it for so cheap?

Also, you should add in an aftermarket cooler for your CPU (Big Typhoon recommended) if you want to heavy OC'ing.

x850XT was the best card of its generation short of the nVidia 6800 Ultra. A really sweet card, and has more pure power than most modern cards.

And Penicilyn, have you ever used a Rosewill? I've had 3 friends use them, and the computers in my university's game room use them, and they've had no issues. While a better PSU may be needed to max out a board like that P5B, it certainly won't "blow up" unless he does something really stupid to it, which I doubt.

Yeah I used Rosswells in two builds for customers on recommendation from OCN users, one was DOA and the other failed 3 months later.

well, it has 5 stars on newegg, and is about 75 retail. Seems like it must be pretty good to me, with the way most PSU's are rated on there. Been using for a month now, no problems. Good PSU.

Sorry, I must have forgot the Zalman 7700 cooler. Only decent one that would fit in this case. + 30 bucks refurbed.
