Notes: This month's mainstream system is right on budget even with a few upgrades. The memory has been swapped out with some G.Skill, it's overclocker friendly if you decide to go that route. The HDD size has increased to a nice round 300GB and the biggest upgrade is moving the motherboard to the enthusiast friendly DFI LANPartyUT NF4 SLI-DR Expert.
