Are you building it yourself? Do you need ALL the parts?

www.newegg.com for reference, once I get some more info I can help out more.

System specs? Lets just get down to it people:

My penis is bigger than yours.

is that in $US?

Radeon 9600's
AMD Athlon 64 3000
dvd drive
monitor: you might find a good deal on a 21" at a swap-meet, ive seen a 21" Sony Trinitron (they had it working) for $400 ($aus)
OS: whatever you prefer
HDD 120GB Seagate SATA 8MB
if you want a good case, you might want to look at a Thermaltake Lanfire case (if you have a big wallet) which has good, and silent cooling.

64 bit isn't going to matter for a long time, there is no point in wasting the extra money for it.
