Default cheapest build for a build with a 8800 GT

I already got the Mobo Ga-ep35-ds3p (70 dollars)

Thats all I got right now, can somebody help me get a list together from newegg?

My budget is around 400 USD

Edit: I can't seem find the 8800gt anymore, so you guys recommend me one please. (516MB one)

what do you want to do with the build? and 516mb doesn't exist the 8800gt was axed and just renamed to the 9800gt. and the 9800gt is around 100 at the cheapest so that's already a quarter of your budget... You could go SUPER budget and make it but it would be a ****-tacular build..

Well, this GPU isn't bad, about 100 bucks.

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100265L Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

As for the rest...

Newegg.com - Antec Basiq BP500UB 500W ATX12V Version 2.01 Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases

Newegg.com - Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives

That with the CPU and RAM I mentioned earlier comes out to $393 before shipping, and before a $30 MIR. As for an optical drive, pick whichever one you like. I recommend a SATA drive, ones that burn DVDs and have lightscribe are just over 20 bucks for a good one.
