Default well...

First you have the combo drive in there twice.
Second you can do better than 400 bucks for 2gb of ram.
Third that's a good price for a fx5500 but I think if you're going top end on everything else why not bump up the card some.
A system is only as good as it's weakest link...

btw that ram wont work with that motherboard. mobo goes ot PC3200 and the ram is PC4000. looks like you went for the best cpu and ram you could get then pussied outta spending more money, cut down the cpu to the lowest dual cor eAMD and then get about 1 gb of ram and then use the money you save for better video card/sound card.,

Yea, having that dual core chip won't do you any good in games if you have that card. So far you haven't been skimping on price, so might as well get a 6600gt, or even x800.

Alright I edited it. How's it looking now?
I don't think I have quite enough money to pay for the whole thing yet, but I'm not capping the price, I'll just have to work more lol.
Hmm,
I wonder how much shipping is going to cost on all of this lol.

darkblade, i was just wondering, with that crazy setup, what fps do you get on games, maybe 1000fps on HL2, a billion on DOOM3, maybe a trillion on BF2?
