I got the setup in my sig for around $600 including shipping and everything. $900 will get you a very nice setup.

Well, I saved a few bucks by getting a couple parts from eBay. You can find some amazing deals there. That $600 doesn't include the monitor, either.

Why not?

Athlon 64 3000+ $146
512MB Crucial Ballistix $80
160GB HDD $40 (with Uber Rebates)
Aspire X-Navigatior w/ 450W PSU $90
GeForce 6800 Ultra $416
evGA nForce 4 ATX Motherboard $110

That is, without the monitor, speakers, and OS

Well with that budget, getting a 6800Ultra will force him to go cheaper for the other parts. I think it would be better to just go with a 6600GT - much cheaper and still very good.
