Good, but my question is why don't you do it yourself? Save the two hundred dollars and change.

wow your paying someone $200 to put together a computer!? Do it yourself man and save the money. It's easier than you think.

To make the job even easier, read this guide and you can't go wrong.

and get Windows XP Home to save money. Pro just has some extra features that you wont need on a home computer.

LoL, well I'm telling you it is easy. I just built my first computer about a week ago and it took me less than a day to get it figured out. Now that I've done it I bet I could have one built in a few hours. If you can use a screw driver and you can read, you can build a computer.

If you really really dont want to build it yourself though, don't pay that guy $150 in labor for what will probably be about 2-3 hours of work. That's $50-$75 an hour! lol

I'm sure someone here would do the same for you for only $100 charge...or less.
I know I would.

Do you have any buddies that live in your town that know anything about computers? They can most likely stand over your shoulder and guide you through it, that would save you money and give you experience.
