i tried and i found a guide but that's not what i'm really looking for. i was more looking for good computer parts in that budget range.

chiefvalue.com, monarchcomputer.com, mwave.com,

Also if you just look like 2 days ago in post you will probably find about 30 Rate my Build and Help me build Post with detailed explanations of what to get and prices.

Monarch also has a pretty solid deal on an Opty 144. They were 133ish I think in the mobo/cpu combo section. Also they have great deals on GPU's and RAM right now for the next couple of days.

are you serious? you're not going to order from newegg.com because of some immature stance like that? you're going to take an exagerrated claim and base a decision on that?... over thousands of people who can vouche for newegg and it's wonderfulness?!?!
