Subtotal: $4,661.75

you do realize you have like 8 of everything selected, right?

probably would be best to find some cheaper RAM too, dominator is kinda expensive lol

the grpahics card is good but its worth upgrading to a 4850 if you have the money. get a cheaper set of gskill memory to save some cash.

EDIT: just realised u tight on cash, so just change the ram over to a gskill set

not sure why it shows up as 8 of everything for you...i only see 1 of each item

final subtotal is 798.17 with only 1 of each item

as for the memory, the corsair at the moment has a $20 instant rebate and a $40 mail in rebate, which brings it down to $44

thanks for the tip on the GPU, i'll look into it
