Lol, I realized that when I was on newegg putting one together.
I'm thinking of slapping on 2GB Crucial Ballistix Tracer, an EVGA 8600GTS, AMD Athlon X2 4850e, 550W Rosewill Stallion PSU, 320GB Seagate Barricuda HDD, and a Lite-On Blu-Ray drive all inside an ARK 400BA HTPC case.
Grand Total: $891.76
