opteron 144 - $130
ASrock Dual Sata - $70
one of these cases depending on which you like(both are good and cheap) - $50
and an enermax 535w - $90
and a 7600GT - $200

total = $540 + shipping

the 7600 is nice but if you want to save money a 6800GT is also decent for now. the 6800s are quickly becoming low end though, but hey..if it works for you, go for it.

P.S. don't need RAM or hdds or OS?

just found a 7600GT CO for $169 on monarchcomputers.com, about the same price as a 6800GT.
