Ok let's see how this sounds to ya?

Athlon XP 1800+_______$355
EPoX 8KHA+ M/B_______$225
17" Monitor____________$350
40gig HDD_____________$210
256MB DDR SDRAM _____$210
Case w/ 300w PSU _____$120

The HDD is either a Western Digital or Seagate 7200rpm (both are the same price from where I get them)
The Monitor is a 17" Viewmaster MF700 Flat but several brands and models at around that price.
I only threw up approx retail costs from around here . :smokin:
