This is my build right now i am at $630 dollars and 35 dollars of rebates.
The main use of this system is to gamin on my 37in vizio television.
the other main reason i am build this is to surf the web.
If you can see any things I can improve my bang for the buck, let me know. Or if I am making any glaring errors of incompatibility, let me know!

You can't link to the Shopping Cart. Either make a public wishlist or link to every individual part.

I will say that it should look like this:

CPU/Mobo: X3 440 and HD Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4 $183 after rebate
RAM: GeIL 2x2 GB 1333 mhz CAS Latency 9 $80
GPU: HD 5770 $135 after rebate and promo code
HDD/PSU: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB and Corsair 650W $125 after rebate
Case/Optical: Coolermaster 690 and cheap SATA DVD burner $73

Total: $596

Or swap the following:

RAM: G.Skill Eco 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $105 (faster sticks)
Case: Coolermaster 335 $40 (slightly lesser case)
Optical: Cheap SATA DVD burner $18

Total: $606

Like this [ url = link]text to display[ / url]. Leave out the spaces.

That's a pretty horrible build. I'll start with mine as a base and suggest some cheaper parts to afford Windows.

First, there's be a combo with the 5770 and the X3 440 for $213 after a rebate.

Second, switch the case for the one I linked above.

Third, swap the HDD for a Seagate 7200.12 500 GB $40 after promo code.

Fourth, there's a combo with the Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4 and Windows 7 for $215 after rebate.

Finally, switch the PSU for this OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W and SATA DVD burner combo ($58 after rebate).

That's a total of $646 after rebates. I looked around for about 30 minutes, but I still can't find anything that'd make this cheaper without losing anything. I'd say the first thing I'd do to lower costs if it needs it is to drop to a 2x1 GB kit of RAM. You could cheaply and easily add a second one later.
