Final total: $1306
Expense to me after selling current toys: $106
Granted, if I didn't want a new netbook to go along with it, this build would only be $875.
The idea is that overclocking will be an option, Asus seems to be the board of choice for budget vs quality. I'm not concerned with the storage on the HDD, so 7200 RPM and 6 GB/s SATA gets the job done. I've also made sure to grab a board that has a 2nd PCIe x16 (albeit running at x4). I also figure that if I do plan on overclocking I should get a case with good airflow, and my chosen case has both airflow and looks (I'm very vain). From what I've heard the nVidia 460's price might drop in a couple of weeks so I can hold off on buying it.
