    Old. That's from 2009, PC hardware and prices change all the time. Try:

    Gamer: $945.86

    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor Model HDZ955FBGMBOX - Retail

    GPU: XFX HD-687A-ZNFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

    COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

    Thermal Compound: Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - OEM

    ---------------

    If you need to cut costs, just find a cheaper optical drive, most will be fine, skip on the thermal compound, go for a HAF 912, get a 6850 instead of a 6870, get a 650w PSU (Corsair/Antec/XFX/Seasonic are good). If you want something better:
