DFI Lanparty UT ULtra-D $120
AMD Athlon X2 3800+ $300, or so
36Gb Raptor $90
200GB Caviar $100
Corsair XMS 2X1GB Dual Channel $150
eVGA 7900 GT $300

that is about $1000, and is GREAT!, unless of course if you dont have a monitor, in which case ill have to make revisions.

And also how about a case, and drives?

Ok the CRT will be fine

Case is basiaclly your choice...just make sure its ATX

also Most drives are alike. Here is a good one.

Also I suggest this case

Low price and cool looking

1036 before shipping, about 1100 after shipping costs (assuming if u do not live in cali or any other place where they have their warehouses)
a little more expensive but you can cut the price buy ditching the case and powersupply for an antec sonata 2 (comes with a good powersupply) and also downgrading the video card to a 7600gt OR using only 1 gig of ram, its your choice =)

Your gonna need an OS, I dont think your dell disc will work for anythng but your dell. You will probally need a PSU too.
