Stickied? WHY? I'm sorry I cant post links from pricewatch, so here's the vendors. Memory. $118 http://store.yahoo.com/digi4me/descommem.html Mobo+Processor. $373.98 http://www.portatech.com/catalog/viewitem.asp?ID=10725 Cant beat the HDD, but I think 37 is too small..... DVD. $18 http://www.amamax.com/blbacobtcbd1.html PSU. $12 http://www.mrtechus.com/power_supply.html Aniother Generic black case. $28 http://store.yahoo.com/saveateaglestore/11bayatxcasw.html?engine=saveateagle+pricewatch&keyword=KG-200B-BLK&amount=.00 His Total: $708.82 My Total: $633.98 I belive this prooves that it is stupid to sticky such a thread, especially when it isn't even the "best deal". Feel free to comment on Brand Names, I just went by performance ratings. Unless you selected that mobo for a reason of course, then that makes me look bad :P www.pricewatch.com was used for all sources. I belive it even searches it's competitors.

Wait, sorry. I found a Cheaper mobo/processor. Not a combo, but still cheaper. It uses the same chipset as the one you guys selected, too, so no complaining about that :p Mobo. $59.99 http://www.belohocel.com/product_info.php?products_id=91 Processor. $285.89 http://www.pcboost.com/store/viewitem.asp?idproduct=8088 My updated total: $605.88 This makes a difference of $102.94 between mine and his. And if chipset doesnt matter, it could go as low as $37 for a motherboard. ...Man, i never knew I could spend so much energy trolling to prove people wrong....
