High currency? WTF... the dollar is at the lowest it has ever been, that PC would have been about $800 on 1999 dollars!

Okay, here's my first question. Any tax? Second question, is there any way that I could just hook my computer into my surround sound system in my room to play the music (now that would be sick, and I'm pretty sure it can be done...which would eliminate the 46 speaker set)?

Run with that boyyyy.

Yes, I think you can hook up surround sound to your PC. And why don't you take out windows. Then just get Linux. That saves you $91 dollars do up the CPU to the winchester.

you will have to get a very high cost audio card to do it though. its cheaper just to go with the X-530's which btw sound very nice and clear

Well, if he wants to game, he needs XP. Secondly, that is the Winchester core CPU... its a 3000+ 939 pin Winchester which can OC nicely. NO, there is NO SALES TAX. Only shipping, which won't be more the $50. So you are still under budget. I would just keep the Logitech speakers, they are very good!
