Default 8 Core.

Can someone make me up an Eight-Core setup with 4gigs ram and a 8800GT? I think i just made one for $1800 but thats seems ridiculously low so i must have done something really wrong. The main parts i used are:

MOBO: $350 SUPERMICRO X7DB8-X-O Dual 771 Intel 5000p
CPU (Two of them): $500 (< All up) Intel Xeon X3220 Quad Core Processor
RAM: $130 G.SKILL 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000)

I really reccomend buying a Quad CPU. It'll save the pennies from being wasted. Even a dual core CPU is still fine for todays and tomorrows standards

nice, leave in 15 minutes
6:35 AM here

if this is a workstation setup then you'd probably want a quadro for gpu?
if this is a gaming computer you want a q6600 for cpu

8 core? Why? And also the x3220 processor is for socket 775, not 771
