Mobo: ASUS P5N-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX = $219 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131142 CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz = $338 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115003 Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce 7950GT 512MB PCI-E = $388 http://www.hothardware.com/Articles/Gigabyte_GeForce_7950_GT/Default.aspx RAM: http://pconlineshop.co.nz/pcshop/product_info.php?cPath=77_78&products_id=24587&RBTid=4e483dc238ae43941c24403837cd6e90 x2 = $160 HDD: Seagate 320GB SATA 7200RPM 16MB = $122 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148140 Case & PSU Raidmax Ninja ATX Mid Tower Case, 520W PSU +12V1=20A,+12V2=17A, Either SILVER or BLACK (haven't chosen) = $194 http://www.ascent.co.nz/ProductSpecification.aspx?ItemID=342669 or http://www.ascent.co.nz/ProductSpecification.aspx?ItemID=342668 Sony 18X AWG170AB2 DVDRW Black Drive = $70 http://pconlineshop.co.nz/pcshop/product_info.php?cPath=85_91&products_id=25921&RBTid=4e483dc238ae43941c24403837cd6e90 Sony MPF920 3.5 Floppy Drive Beige/Silver/Black = $15 http://www.nzoczone.com/product_info.php?cPath=22&products_id=1897 And OS will be be XP Professional I think. Most of them will be bought else where here in New Zealand. Just found sites with most info. All that comes to about (not including OS) $1620 NZD which is about $1190 USD. Parts here are generally more expensive. Also, what would I need in the way of cooling. So, what would this be like, and anyone have any suggestions or tips. Thanks.
