Comes to around $1132.00. If newegg.com is US pricing, which I highly suspect, then this is a little steep, is it not? If anyone can suggest anymore compatibility issues, or money savers, please speak up as you've all been a great help so far.
1) Case is ok but if I were you I would go with a case that doesnt come with a power supply or replace the power supply it comes with unless it is nice to begin with.....That case you selected still has a crappy power supply. If there is one aspect you dont to overlook it is the power supply. Sure it is a 500w power supply but the +12v rail amperage sucks.....Id try to find a 500+ watt psu with at least 30A total to the +12v rail such as this one:
2)Dont forget for the memory you want to go with 2 sticks of ram and not one so that you can take advantage of the dual ddr capabilities....so if you want 1 gig go with 2 512 sticks of ram. I personally think for performance/price I would opt for a different ram than you chose. I would lean toward this ram so you can get the TCCD chips, the lowest cas latency timings:
G.SKILL Extreme Series 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM System Memory - Retail $151.82
This comes out to around $1321.00. This is quite expensive for me, any suggestions on how I could lower this cost to maybe around $1000.00 without sacrificing too much performance? Also, are there any discounts I get from newegg.com for ordering a certain amount?
Well, you could go for value ram; that should knock off $50 or so, but would make overclocking harder. Since the x800 xl doesn't have especially high power requirements, you might consider getting the Coolermaster Centurion 5 case w/psu for $75; its not the best on the market, but mine works well enough. You might also consider swapping the graphics card for a less expensive x800gt or gto; the performance isn't that much less...but the savings isn't all that impressive. The Nvidia 6600gt goes for +/- $150 these days, and is pretty decent.
