CPU - E5420

GPU - 9800GX2 OR 9800GTX

MOBO - DFI LANPARTY 925X-T2

HDD - any 320Gb+ WD hdd will be gd

RAM - TWIN2X2048-8500C5D

so far adds up to around $900-$1200 depending on which graphics card u get.
leaves $400-$700ish for the case, psu, dvd drive, keyboard/mouse, monitor, speakers.

you could downgrade the cpu a bit if you need more cash

Anyone else got any good ideas?

staticICE :: ati 4870 : Australia's comprehensive computer hardware and gadget price comparison search engine
get one or even two of them (if you get two, you'll need a crossfire compatible motherboard)
