^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
You might be a little over budget, you should post prices too.

Does anyone have the Lean Machine issue of maximum pc because that has a setup for under $1200.

But it does not include speakers, keyboard, or mouse

I need the monitor as well and the ide cable, but i think it has to include tax and shipping and still be at the $1300 budget.

I would personally get a monitor such as this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824208003
Also, you may want to upgrade the 6600gt to a 6800gs which is 200$
If you're on a strict budget though, stick with the 6600gt

19" monitor for only 250 dollars 8MS !!!

defintely go with an X2 processor
try to fit in 2GB you could always get a cheap mouse and keyboards and upgrade later

Ridlyn
he doesnt need IDE cables as they come with the mobo

TT psu's arent really that great as they supply great voltages in the beginning but lose quality fast
