Are you buying that from a brand-name company or building your own? Because you can build something much better for under $600. Shipping might take it over $600, but you'll smoke that system there. I'm talking, Sempron 64, 1GB RAM, Radeon 9600Pro/9800Pro.

I just built a faster computer 3 months for $350.

I'd only give that about $300

$350? What specs? I find a $350 complete system difficult to do, especially when you say it's better than this.



I'll give approx. prices on what I see from this build...

$90 windows
$40 case
$40 RAM
$60 HDD
$40 video card
$30 PSU

That brings it to $320, no shipping, no motherboard, no processor, no input devices, no sound card, no optical drives, no speakers. See my difficulty with believing you?
