    A7N8X Deluxe - $215
    Audigy 2 ZS - $189
    XP2800 Barton Core - $250
    WD1200JB Hard Drive - $180

    Total - $830

    And you could spend the extra $150 on a stick of Corsair P3200 265MB ram.

    That'd be my pick, but I'm sure someone will challenge it ;)

    I like pick #2, naturally. IMO the only really good PC3500 is Mushkin Black Level II or OCZ Platinum Limited Edition as they overclock extremely well and run the fastest 2-2-2-5 timings.

    I prefer the MSI i865 boards to the Asus ones & around here they're about $50cad cheaper even w/SATA

    ....I'd like to try the epox version too
