ditch the soundcard.

I'd rather have a decent 2.1 speaker setup than a really cheap 5.1 speaker setup.


You can find some nice ASUS mobos for less that overclock very well for about $90.

For your budget & needs, I would budge on the hard drive and find a cheaper 16mb drive. $125 is too much.

I'd go with a $50 PSU 450 watt FSP group.

$1,280.84 and $1250 after rebates:
