Gross. Too much work, and by exclude the case do yall mean exclude a certain price because I dont mind buying a 70 dollar case. I still think its like impossible to get half that stuff. Grr.

The reason why I suggested you exclude the case was because if you include it in the price you might have to cheap out on the PSU.<br />
<br />
I'll see if I can put something together...

Now is that mobo a good overclocker? Also I am super picky with cases and dont like that one but I could probably mod/find another for the price. Besides that I like the help finding some stuff, just wondering the OCing of that mobo.

Well I found a sweet PSU for a sweet price, and the rest is proven stuff, as well.<br><br>
CPU: Core 2 Duo E6400: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16819115004" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115004</a><br>
Mobo: Gigabyte DS3: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16813128012" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128012</a><br>
RAM: G Skill 1 GB DDR2 800: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16820231085" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231085</a><br>
PSU: SFC 550W (Total 42A 12V Rails): <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16817203002" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817203002</a><br>
Case: Cooler Master Centurion: <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?item=N82E16811119068" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119068</a><br><br>
Total Price: $607.96 - $40 MIR = $567.96 + shipping<br><br>
Well, since there's room in the budget and you hate the Centurion, you can look at a Lian Li or even an Armor for the price.

Hey but if you get a 1GB stick now, u can add a second 1GB stick later for dual channel. Just so you won't have to run 4 sticks later or so.
