Unless you use your old key (sold your old computer ><?) then that's probably the best you can get.

As mentioned you can obtain one by other "methods" but we can't disguss it here.

Newegg.com - Intel Pentium E2180 Allendale 2.0GHz 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - CPUs / Processors

Total before shipping:$567.92
Shipped to my place it added $31.26 making it a Grand Total of: $599.18

This build will overclock that E2180 to 3.3ghz or so and in that build there is the 8800GT 512 which is the same card as I have and at a small 15 inch monitor it will destroy just about anything and everything. You wanted decent? This will be awesome

You can change out the case if you want but you always have to have a well ventilated case when using an RP550 becuase of the caps on them. Other than that the RP550 has 35A on the 12's which is plenty enough for that build overclocked.

Only bad thing is you didnt include an OS, but man maybe i could sacrifice cause this build is sick! I just added the OS and shipping came out to like $697 lol. How much better is that 8800gt compared to the Gs? What else could we go slighty cheaper on?

Puddle jumper added an OS in his build so i figure i'd show you what you could do without one.
Also i forgot to add the E2180 in the links but it is included in the build. I edited it.
