If I were you... I spend a few weeks roaming the college campus collecting bottles and cans... After that time... you'll certainly have the extra $300.00 you need to complete $1300

$300.00 / .05 = 6000 cans or bottles. 6000 / 30 days = 200 per day

You'd need to collect 200 bottles and cans a day to reach your goal.

At college that is really easy to do...

OR - you can do what we did in college:

(2) Hot Senior Chicks or Strippers
Watered down alcohol
$10 admission and the door
(100) Horny freshman guys

(1) long chick on chick makeout session

Give each girl $250 and keep the $500 for yourself.
Some of that money will go to watered down alcohol and paying off the RA's on duty. Also a small fraction may go to flyers or word of mouth advertising....

You could easily make $300 on a sweet party like that...

ROFL now thats an idea...actually one of my friends got selected to go on an aids-tanzania trip, and one of the fundraisers to defer the cost was a party labeled "alcohol 4 aids"

lol it was priceless, 5 bucks for all you can drink, granted they didnt provide any "entertainment" but they made out with a net profit of $420...pretty good idea if you ask me, especially for a fundraiser...who doesn't love all you can drink with no one to hassle you?

Yeah i agree with everything exept the 6800GT thing the 6800Gs is about 50$ cheaper than the GT. and yeah just get the Lite-on DVD-RW drive cause you dont need 2. and you can get a good 19' CRT monitor for the price of your LCD but if your trying to save just go with a good 17' CRT and 15' arent bad for games there just really small and i hate mine. And 1 last thing Keep the MSI mobo its one of the best out there at a reasonably good price. and if you can find a mobo with dual ethernet ports like a DFI lan Party you might save by dropping the 2 network cards but im not very good with networking so talk to someone else about that.

add about 120 for a good 17' CRT=1180-22(dvd-rom)=1158
