This is missing DVD drive, HD, etc. Assume you would use the old stuff off your other computer, if not; then add this into costs. Plus some could reuse their power supply, case, memory etc to save even more money so this is just a crude estimation really with NewEgg prices. And you are at least looking at a bare minimum of a $500.0 investment into building a new system from what I can see. Prices are subject to change and may vary by store.

Good luck to everyone out there!
