</ul>Total: $980.90 + $34.85 shipping - $20 MIR = $995.75<br />
<br />
Comments:<br />
I do NOT know whether the motherboard supports the Xeon CPU!!! This information is hard to find. I guess the CPU is so new, that the mobo manufacturers have not updated their CPU support databases yet.<br />
<br />
Possible savings:<br />
- Get an E6300 for $183; also, you'll be sure about CPU support.<br />
- If you have keyboard and mouse, just drop it from the list

</div>I agree 100% with Chozart on this one. The only thing I'm not sure about is the CPU support also. It's sooo new <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" />

PS: the total of $1,015.75 is before MIR. After MIR it's $995.75. Thus, within budget <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> I edited my post
