Well if the OP meant inside the box, I will have to go with my GPU @ $130 bf $30 mail in rebate (I still haven't gotten it back yet).

Thats right my mb was $140 so that is my most expensive part in this build.

Lol, hard drive for me

The computer I'm running now (desktop) is a Sempron that I built for under $100 for mobo, PSU, CPU, salvaged some old RAM and a video card and an old Compaq case, cheap USB keyboard...but I have a new 1.5TB Seagate that I leave hooked up to it. Not a gaming build, but I game on my laptop or 360.

I have an old XP 2800 desktop, my most expensive part is the new monitor (newish).
