Exactly. Thats what you need to tell your customers. Example; a $400 Dell would include a 2.8GHz pentium 4, with 256 MB RAM, a 40 GB HDD, and NO videocard.
For $470, I built my friend a system with a 1.8GHz Sempron 64 3000+, 1 GB RAM, 80 GB HDD, and a Radeon 9600Pro. Whats more, I overclocked his processor (he knows, he asked me to) from 1.8GHz to 2.6GHz on stock cooling.
That system blows away the Dell that he was going to buy. Now, he still had to buy a monitor, but I let him use my Windows 2000 CD.
