    I'd charge $550-650 after swapping in a cheaper psu. The 800w seems mismatched for the card.

    AMD Phenom II 940- $100
    Enzo Tech Extreme-X + Enzo Tech backplate- $30
    Asus M3A78-T- $70-80
    4 X Mushkin 996599- $160
    XFX 4850 1GB- $80-90
    800watt Mushkin psu- $120-130
    3u case with 2 antec 3 hhd bays with 120mm fans- $50

    so yeah $600-650

    i dont remember where the renders are i made for it, but based on the layout the front 5.25 and 3.5 bays could be cut out, the face of the case could be custom fab'd to allow a rad to sit right behind it. Hdds get moved to this nice little hdd mount actually built into the psu support structure in the case by default.Rewire the psu to eliminate all the non-essentials get some nice nickel plated blocks for the gpu and cpu, throw in a window carved into the top panel and a nice powder coat and it could have been epic :(
