I think you can do much better than that. Using combos and stuff like that, I was able to make a build @ 1253$ +tx +shipping - 40$MIR, but with much better components like the latest Sandy bridge and a GTX 460 768MB.

I'd make a job out of choosing parts and building PCs for people if it wasn't from the fact that I'd probably end-up doing tech support as well :p
