I did already in the review,,,,

The cards rebate is over, but the other prices are still relavant...

newegg had the card for like $105 with a $20.00 rebate on each card...

The motherboard is actually cheaper now so the cost is even less...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813123257&ATT=13-123-257&CMP=OTC-d3alt1me

I am not going to list item by item do your own homework like I did.

if you are really trying to save money invest the time to do some research.

I've been thinking about this same rig. Would there be any advantage to using a 3400+ Newcastle? Also, what do you think about 7600GS or 7600GT in place of the 6600s?
