    Dude thats not gonna be cheap at all, over a thousand for sure.

    64bit, 256mb gfx (which isnt necessary 128 will run just as good), and a 64bit motherboard is very expensive.

    I said exactly the same thing. Well I thought it at least. I have a spreadsheet - in the awesome OpenOffice.org - at it totals... *reads spreadsheet*.... £510.08. Wait, you're mostly from the USA, right? I guess that's about $1,000 USD? I'm not too sure.

    Wow didn't know the price of amd 64 bit went down so much, haven't been paying attention much to them recently because of my new laptop. But the setup will still be around 600-800.

    Well in case we still have non-believers, I uploaded the said spreadsheet to my site:

    Complete with links and pricetags.
