My System Specs


You can definitely get a comp for $350 given that doesn't include monitor and you already have a optical drive. I don't know why everyone is saying you can't. NCIX is your friend this week.

NCIX.com - Buy Kingston ValueRAM KVR800D2N5/2G PC2-6400 2GB 1X2GB DDR2-800 240PIN DIMM Memory - KVR800D2N5/2G In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy OCZ StealthXStream OCZ500SXS 500W ATX12V 24PIN Active PFC ATX Power Supply 120MM Fan Black - OCZ500SXS In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA2 3.5IN 8.5MS 7200RPM 16MB Hard Drive OEM *3YR MFR Warranty* - ST3500418AS In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H AMD785G mATX AM2+ PCI-E DDR2 Video Sound GBLAN CrossFireX HDMI Motherboard - GA-MA785GM-US2H In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy AMD Athlon II X2 250 Dual Core Processor Socket AM3 3.0GHZ 2MB Cache 60W Retail Box - ADX250OCGQBOX In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Gigabyte GZ-PH1A3 Black Sgcc ATX Mid Tower Case 4X5.25 1X3.5 5X3.5INT Front USB Audio No PSU - GZ-PH1A3 In Canada.

$286.93 +tax and shipping. Then there is $25 in mail in rebates and you may be able to price match the processor and possibly other parts cheaper. Grab them before they sell out. I think this is about as good as its going to get for that money. The case would be the only part I am unsure about, but it should be plenty good for this build.

EDIT: price match case to bestdirect and save $6 on case
Desktop: Arc Midi R2, Z77-D3H, 3570K 1.09v/4.1ghz with Zalman Optima Cooler, Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb@1866mhz, XFX R9 280X DD, Bitfenix Fury 750w, WD Black 1TB, Intel 530 120GB
