My sig . Although to get it in budget take out the watercooling, get the 7800gtx instead of the x1800xt, and maybe get an OCZ or Antec PSU instead.

Okay, from my research for my build roughly the same price range this is what I would say to get (these are estimates)

4000+ or 3800+ dual core CPU------$330
DFI Lanparty Ultra-D-------------------$130
Creative SB X-Fi-------------------------$120
Antec TruepowerII 550 watts--------$90
2GB OCZ Platinum RAM----------------$250
Seagate Barracuda 250GB----------- $100
DVD-ROM or DVD Burner---------------$20 (Player) or $40 (Burner)
Nice Speakers/Headphones----------$40+

Total = $1600+ depending on what case, speakers/headphones, hard drive, and optical drive you get and assuming you have your own monitor.
