Welcome to the forums and congratulations on winning the processor. Did you get the 760 or 770??
I found all the following prices via Froogle and shopping.legitreviews.com
Processor - Free
ASUS Z71V Chassis - $724 - Axcent Micro
CD-RW/DVD Combo Drive - $90 - ABS Computer Technologies
2 x 256mb Kingston SO-DIMM's - KVR533D2S4/256 - $76- MWave
Since you got a free CPU you would need the above parts $890 and then a hard drive ($115ish). Hopefully you have a Windows XP cd sitting around to use. Total cost would be just over one grand which is a steal.
Add in a good hard drive and you will have a sweet system! If you have an idea what sized monitor you'd want in a smaller notebook let me know and I will think about other good notebooks that would have ATI or nVidia graphics.

Pentium M 760
2 x 512 DDR2
60GB 7200 RPM
Intel Pro A/B/G Wireless
ASUS 24X CD-R 24X CD-RW 8X DVD-ROM 24X CD-ROM
Everything went together easily and I couldn't be happier. Not a single hitch with hardware or XP installation.
Thanks for all the help...
