That it definatly tough to do since a decent video card will be half of that and a decent processor will be at least half of what is left. That doesnt leave enough for decent RAM and mobo. Also a PSU and OS are neededd and HDD.

Case/Psu still needed. For the case, I reccomend going to your local store and buying it. Not worth the 16 dollars shipping. As for the PSU, choose a good value PSU.

You don't always get rebqates back so it could be a loss of money.

The computer is not for me. I already have a decent computer.

I am getting paid to build someone a computer. So telling them to wait a year is not in my best interest.

But anyways....... I am rebuilding a list from what people have posted. It is going to be a hybrid computer made from parts that everyone has listed.....

Fry's is honestly good about rebates
Make copies of it all and if you never get it back you can go in and if you ***** loudly theyll give you your money so youll shut up. Trust me on this as it has happened to me

Also what pisses them off alot is to not stop by the door
By law they cannot make you stop but they always give you that look which btw is Priceless
