    Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
    Biostar P35D2-A7
    4GB DDR2 800MHz (Dual Channel Kit)
    Echo Star 680 Watt Power Supply
    nVidia GeForce 9500 512MB PCI Express X16
    Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 24-bit Sound Card
    $820

    I'm not sure about the motherboard so I picked that, of the options I get
    Intel DG35ECB $54.88
    Asus P5K EPU $83.18
    Asus P5N-D $115.85

    Power Supply 680 going to be enough after I add two sata drives?

    nVidia 9500 has two dvi's or just one? I'll have dual monitors hooked up

    Cpu Cooler, two case fans included, no drives I have two already. Vista home prem, 2 year warranty

    pretty bad. Video card is terrible, try to get a 9600GT at least if your going on the cheap side, or an older 8800GT
