At a rough guess around $700 overpriced.

The GTX 295 did come out in 2004 so his camera is correct. [/joke]

sure you might save a buck or two somewhere else but thats why I put roughly before each number.. some of it I had a hard time finding too..

and if you wait a year you might even be able to build this machine at half the cost
