Tigerdirect and newegg are good sites but you might also want to check your local stores because they might have better deals, especially the private owned ones.

Well basically I would suggest any socket 939 Motherboard and an X2 or FX proccesor.

DFI LP Ultra-D - 125
AMD 3700+ San Diego - 220
1GB G.Skill LA's - 210
7800GXT - 430
Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 250GB SATA - 110
Antec Truepower II 550W - 75
Thermaltake Tsunami - 100
NEC 3540A - 40
Creative X-Fi Xtreme Music - 125
Sony Floppy - 10

Total - 1445

I just did those prices off the top of my head so they may be slightly higher or lower. I hope you don't need a monitor and speakers because I didn't include them.

That will be sweet for gaming though.

I suggest spending a little less on the case and a little more on the CPU.
