Inside? Currently that would be my RAM. $180 for two gigs of top-end G.Skill back in the day. That's not counting the gig Nagasama sent me (thanks, buddy).

That's how much Q6600s were four months ago, on every site I visited. Scan.co.uk periodically have them for 130 in their Today Only section (incidentally that's where I got my entire build, excluding the case I got last month).
The entire build in my sig cost 640, though the case was 100 and like I said, bought afterwards, so 540.

Still, I've bought stuff from them for years, never had a problem with them

Edit: Ah, now I've read the entire thing, I guess Scan is to blame there :P
