I like builds where people already have moniter/keyboard/mouse/speakers then all the money goes to good parts.
and sometimes a sexy li lian case.

i already have the The OS and HDD but i do need keyboard speakers and mouse, i also already have the optical drives as well.
It will also take a while to save up the money so as technology gets better ill change what i get.
Im also gonna need a sound card as well.
Thx PZEROFGH

Do you do sound recording/editing etc? As you can save the money and put it towards a 7800gt.

Basically wat Pzerofgh said will be ther best way to spend it. But have 2 1gb sticks over 4X 512.

Razer Copperhead Tempest Blue 2000dpi High Precision Gaming Mouse and a nice laser mouse mat is a necesity with these high precision mouse's.
