It would help if you said at least where you lived.

The Toms solution would be for you to repeat your post at least 3 times. The forum will then kindly hyperlink you to a suitable site partner where you can buy all of the products you desire....

Well, the prices depend on where you live. If you're in the US, newegg.com or zipzoomfly.com are always good places to look, their prices are usually amongst the lowest. And as for the graphics card, the price really depends much more on the chipset, not on the available video memory.

E6600: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115003 - $233

P5N-E SLI: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131142 - $140

Seagate Barracuda 320GB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148140 - $80

Graphics card - this X1950Pro should be a good choice looking at your other components:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102061 - $155 plus a $20 mail in rebate

That's a total of $608 minus a 20 dollar rebate, which isn't too bad.

Make sure you get proper memory and a proper PSU for this build, but I'm not good with those things. Of course, if you don't live in the US, your mileage will vary.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=004&ss...

4-4-4-12-1 ddr 800 2.05-2.15v (patriot skill corsair they all work fine)
nb = 1.5 ,1.55 auto is ok
Vcore = 1.4125

fsb 1500 9x
cpu 3.37ghz

nb add 40mm fan
sb add a hear sink (coolermaster heat sink an fan is $7)
memory add a crab cooler or other

psu: silverstone stider 600 or 750 even the zeus 560 works great





the fans drop the mobo temp 10-15c allow fast oc - i stand behind these for 3 years thats why its only 3.37 ghz
