the total of the parts come to $636.85. i think that is a pretty good setup for the price. please let me know what you think. the os is not included because they dont carry windows 2000 or me. but who does, so thats one thing i will be getting off of ebay. one last thing. how should i go about buying the parts. should i buy them all at once, that seems kind of boring to me cause i will have to save more, or should i buy the first part then save and buy the next part. thanks alot.
