Default Build a system for $750

www.ebuyer.com
www.overclockers.co.uk

currency rate = 750$ = £400

Using only those two websites, build a system with only 400 pounds, or $750 dollars. It's for a friend in europe.

Yeah, but the next step up on that site is a 6800GS, which puts you a good 50+ quid over.

EDIT: eBuyer has this nice 6600GT for sale, 99.99
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/92137

That'd put him at 413.31, just slightly over.
