clicky

other than that

Core 2 Duo
Raptor HDD
Intel Mobo
7900 GT
Gskill 2 Gb
NZXT Lexa Case
Aspire pre sleeved 520 w PSU
NEC DVD/CD R/RW +/-


IF YOU NEED ONE:
Acer 19" monitor
Zalman 9500


TOTAL WITHOUT MONITOR AND ZALMAN: $1433
TOTAL WITH MONITOR AND ZALMAN: $1698

REMEBER THOSE COSTS DONT INCLUDE SHIPPING.

If you dont need the monitor, I would suggest getting an inexpensive water cooling system. This one is AWSOME

Thermaltake bigwater

WITHOUT MONITOR/ZALMAN BUT WITH WATER COOLING: $1568

I don't think the bigwater is a good watercooling system...better off building his own.

I don't think he needs watercooling period. The Core 2 Duo does fine on stock settings with stock air cooling.

Bigwater's pump is weak, don't get bigwater... :P
I wouldn't recommend a raptor, unless you're going to get two of them, because 2 SATA2 drives in RAID0 is better IMO.
