Btw, are there any parts you can re-use? Such as monitor, hard drives, old case etc.
Also, do you need an OS?

K, here's what I have; it's 535.55 when you opt for free shipping (the super saver); add up to 11 for next day delivery. eBuyer is a good site, I use them a lot.

Case: X-Clio Godspeed One Advanced Black Mid Case 2x 180mm Side Fans and 2x 80mm Top Fans Included - Ebuyer

CPU: Intel Core i5 750 2.66GHz Socket LGA1156 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor - Ebuyer

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P55-UD3R iP55 Socket 1156 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard - Ebuyer

Power supply: Corsair 450W HX Series Modular PSU - 7 Year Warranty - Ebuyer (it has a 7 year warranty!)

GPU: Sapphire HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 HDMI DVI VGA PCI-E Graphics Card - Ebuyer

RAM: Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz/PC3-12800 XMS3 i5 Memory Kit CL9(9-9-9-24) 1.65V - Ebuyer

And, I think that's everything.

An i5 for less than 550, that's cheaper than I thought. Still the build is missing an HDD and an ODD.

Oops yeah, I forgot a couple things >_< me idiot am being! Thanks kmote.

ODD: Sony AD-5240S 24x DVDRW DL Internal SATA Black Bare Drive - OEM - Ebuyer

HDD: Western Digital WD5001AALS 500GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache - OEM Caviar Black - Ebuyer

And you could go up to a 4870, which are ~115 compared to ~75.
