and heres some memory:
CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory $129. u might want to private message this list to a more knowledgable person to make sure its good but it should run fine. again all these prices are from newegg. and the case is up to u. i really like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129154
but it might be too much. just a suggestion.

if u need a monitor then ull need to downgrade some of this to make room. try downgrading the processor to a 3200 from AMD and maybe just a 1gig stick instead of two 512mb. and if ur desparate, toss the sound card for the time being.

wow.. umm.. ok well first off why go with corsair XMS RAM if your not overclocking?!?... look here and read section three (might as well read all of it).
http://www.techist.com/showthread.php?threadid=77323

go with some Corsair Valueselect:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145440

go with this video card instead of the SAPPHIRE (why even recommend a Sap? they suck -.-)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130271


Why spend extra money to get a CROSSFIRE mobo?? get this...Since you saved about 80 bucks so far, you can spend the extra 20 on this...

these are my suggestions: lol i managed to keep it under $500, but if you could muster up another $150 or so, i could make this rig a lot better.



venice 3000+ $132


TUL, 939 $50 mobo, $10 off combo w/ cpu

1GB 1X512 valueselect corsair ram $66.25

6600gt $118 (comes w/ $20 mail in

rebate)
WD 80gb SATA hard drive $51

FSP 450wattt PSU - very reliable $51

case $30

total: $488.23 PLUS $20 maill in rebate

so maybe total after taxes and shipping might just be $500. if you can get a bit more money, even $50 or $100, i can make the necessary tweaks to make this better. good luck.
