As of August 3, 2009 these prices I'm about to qoute dropped to $460.00 (Last Time I Checked at New Egg)

Here's the List:

Video Card- Power Color AX4870 412 MB Price $ 175.00
CPU- Intel Pentium E5200 2.5 GHZ Wolfdale Price $ 71.00
Motherboard- MSI P43 Neo3 F LGA775 Price $ 90.00
Memory- Crucial 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM 800 Price 23.00
Optical Drive- Samsung SH-S223F 22X DVDR Price $ 25.00
Hard Drive- Western Digital Caviar SE WD3200AAJS 320 GB Price $ 50.00
Case And Power Supply- Rosewill TU-155 11 500 Black Price $ 75.00

These may have "Rebates" OK... Go Ahead and play Crysis at 40 FPS! Or, Unreal Tournament 111 :cool:

I wouldn't touch the CPU, and for the price I'd go for the ATI Radeon 4890, but otherwise I'd say this is a cool rig.
