Go down to the bottom and select tell me the price. It comes to about 600.
But I can't make a definite parts selection until I know what you're doing with the PC.

OK, that makes it a bit cheaper. Here goes again: http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/index....m&&select=amd2
But I can't get the site to display the specs I chose, so here they are:
6400+ X2
4GB Corsair XMS2 800MHz RAM
250GB 8MB HDD
8800GT 512MB
600W quad rail PSU
No operating system
Onboard LAN port
Trident case
Don't chose Norton antivirus at the end. You can get better free programs. Most people on these forums including me use AVG Free-edition and Spybot search and destroy.
This would be much better performing than the Ebay listing.
