My e6400 build cost me close to $2k, back in January, where a 2GB kit cost $250+.

Q6600, DS3R, TRUE, and HDD cost $500 on top of my e6400. Just moved the e6400, P5N-E, and XMS2 into another case.

My Build was very good value, thanks mostly to K M A N in B/S/T section. It cost me about £450, which is about $700/750 USD. Without monitor.

currency in pounds/rough guess in USD

e6300 25/45
X1950PRO 25/45
AF7 0/0
Antec 900 65/115
Samsung 500GB 65/115
P35 Plat 105/180
2GB Corsair 55/100
PCP&C 610 65/115

It may seem alot to American members but remember that in the UK, computr stuff costs a **** of alot more.

$1250 after Tax and Shipping, right on budget
But, add my monitor and things I kept it would come to about $1600.
Thankgod you can reuse parts that don't need to be upgraded.

Mine cost around 1600.00 (specs are in my sig) but that number will soon go up, because I'll be upgrading to a 250.00 22" LCD, plus I might step-up to the 8800 Ultra, I also plan to add a terabyte of storage, and possibly buy into watercooling, and if not that, then a Tuniq or something.
