Edit; it's about $816 after shipping with that buildout, so you probably would be better off with the regular PIIx4 920.
I went back to my build and changed a few things and came up with this:
I changed the GFX cause the reviews were saying that it is basically a 9800GTX+ for a little cheaper. Changed the memory and hard drive also.
Can anyone make sure for me that they would all be compatible? The price is down to about $895 with S&H/taxes.
Edit: Looked over the CPU's and saw this one (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115055
) for $35 cheaper at the cast of 0.07GHz and was wondering if it would be better?
Edit 2: Changed the monitor, here's current: http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/Pu...umber=10218672
Edit 3: Decided to just go with the 2.4GHz, not too much more expensive. Enough that I can make it.Edited by ThePoofyChicken_ - 3/29/09 at 12:41am
