If you want to know what is really good, look at some of the people's sig to get some ideas. I'm still working on mine, so I'll be updating that as I go. Newegg and Zipzoomfly have very competitve pricing and I do see some items cheaper than others against these two online stores.

Take a look at Zen's and Blah Blah's sig. Mine too, but all you'll see is the motherboard and DVD burner. I truly believe I have the best DVD burner here, heheh. LG 16x dual layer multiformat. It's got fast write and rewrite rates compared to most competitors. Compare it...

Oh my god, Zen and Blah's specs are nearly identical (almost)!! You guys should run some benchmarks on your setup.
