    I tend to do this in my spare time for alot of my friends. Just looking around websites and putting together custom computer deals that suit the moment. Maybe il see if someone likes them here!

    Here we go!
    Motherboard
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128354

    Memory
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231098

    CPU (I was recommending the E8400 at first, but after some research I learned you should just OC the difference)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115052

    Case and PSU put together with free ship!
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811121004

    YOUR CHOICE OF 1 of 2 VIDEO CARDS DEPENDING ON YOUR BUDGET
    ATI 4850
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102747
    Nvidia GF 8800GT (I was going to skip it because ATI is on a roll, but at $119 I couldnt deny it)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133232

    HDD
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148262

    Burner
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151171

    With NVidia = $534.93 + $8.97 Shipping
    Total $543.90!

    With ATI = $584.93 + $8.97 Shipping - $15 MIR
    Total $578.90!

    Might be of use to someone looking for a quick and fairly cheap build that doesnt have time for research?

    That ram is better. Those Gskills run 5-5-5-15 800mhz @ 2.0v which is pretty bad for today's standards.

    And that case comes with a PSU that wont explode in your face!! Can run a HD 4850 too. I got that same case+psu combo in one of my friends rigs and it runs a ASUS HD 4850 with a E7200 perfect :)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131329

    and I just ordered that for my friend. Hes got a E7200 and a G31 board and its not running so great :( I will tell you how it is!

    I wouldn't buy another gigabyte for myself personally but if its for someone else then they can deal with their "support team".

    I dont have the link with me atm, but I remember wondering about that before myself and did the research on it. It seemed to have everything needed with no one complaining.

    Im personally using those and im running them WAYYY faster then they are rated at. Isnt that the difference most of the time? Some ram tested to run at high speeds while others just havent been tested and could easily do more than what advertised.
