Wait a minute, what I recommended up there is going to push you off budget by $50... let me revamp your rig.....

$300 is the max you can spend? or do you have more to spend along with the $300 you got for your B'day

I am definetly willing to go up to the high 300s/$400 if I can get the e7200 with the 9600gt or 3870hd and that $75 500gbb hdd I showed you

Sites don't matter I just want the cheapest...remember I don't need ram or psu...also no need for mouse keyboard or moniter and I also will probably use my current cd/dvd drive

I remember you already have the Ballistix and the Corsair 520hx

but then I'll make some recommendation changes:

9600gt (or HD3870)
e7200
EP35-DS3R
and that HD you already have

That mobo is $120 and I haven't bought the HD...unless you mean the 500gb I posted. Also what's the cheapest place to find 9600gt and e7200 ( any deals?)

You cold save some money and get the DS3L.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

At that resolution a 8800gs will be able to run most games with max settings.

Newegg.com - XFX PVT88SFDF4 GeForce 8800GS 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Default Re: Budget PC

your best bets would be

a) looking for used items off forums (ie tech forums, hard forums, overclock.net, and anandtech)

or

b) saving up more

you can find crazy deals on forums alot of times
