you could save quite a bit (I think around 700$) If you build it on you'r own.

here i'll make you a pricelist following Newegg.

Full-tower case: gigabyte 3D Aurora - 149.99$

PSU: NZXT PRC-550W-AP ATX 12V V2.01 550W Active PFC Power Supply 115/230 V - Retail - 109.99$

as newegg do not sell the AM2 5000+ I suggest go for: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor 2000MHz HT Socket AM2 Processor Model ADA4200CUBOX - Retail -358.99$

or the 4600+ for 585$

water cooling, say you get one of those fancy dangerden custom kits for like 200$ (though you can get cheaper ones..)

Same mobo you chose (Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe nForce 590-SLI etc): 229.99$

same memory as you chose: $270.00

Vid card: eVGA 01G-P2-N592-AX Geforce 7950GX2 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 - 579.99$

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3300622AS 300GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM -109.99$

DVD Burner: NEC 16X DVD±R DVD Burner Beige IDE Model ND-3550A - Retail - 39.99$

2075.93$ Roughly, I guess around 2150$ with the shipping +/-.

If you wish to buy the 4600 then it will be roughly 2301.94$ and like 2361$ with the shipping +/-... even after adding an O.S. you still save up over 200-300$... but thats only if you wish to build it on you'r own.

Didnt bother to put in an O.S. because buying one is just a waste of money...
