See I got this brilliant idea to build computers and sell them on the internet. (Yeah right!) I really should have done more research etc..
It seems what I have put together is an outragous price for what I am trying to sell. No one wants to buy it.
I need your help. Here is what I currently have (list compiled from newegg.com):

Est cost of shipping these products to me:
Est cost if I put this on eBay:
To get a little profit I'd probably want to sell it around $900.
Now here's where I need some suggestions..
Are there any other good websites I can buy parts off of besides newegg.com?
Should I remove Windows XP to lower price and offer it as an upgrade instead?
What video card should I put in it, for the highest quality and lowest price?
(Everyone that has been interested in buying the computer, have all been turned off by the one currently in it.)
Should I downgrade the hard drive to 80 GB to lower the price?
Should I choose a cheaper motherboard?
I think that's all the questions I wanted to ask..if you have any suggestions please post those too
