Comes to $904.05 after shipping. Then you get 60 bucks back in MIRs.

You can throw in a Core Contact for cooling purposes, would make it easier to overclock.

Newegg.com - Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120 mm Core-Contact Freezer CPU Cooler W/TX-2 - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Will make the total (with shipping) $944.05.


Also, you can save about 80 bucks if you don't get Vista, and just get the Win7 RC for free.

EDIT: Forgot a wireless adapter...any of these would be good. I have the Rosewill RNX-N100, it's great. But the cost went up recently.

Be a little more clear when you reply. Are you saying he already has that card? If so, that is a better card than the 4770 I linked you to, and will work fine.

Then great, that takes about 100 bucks out of the cost here. You're well under budget.
