What do you exactly mean by going private? Looking at off brands or what?

Have somebody make a computer for you. You get a lot better quality for your money. I make computers, as do many other here. I'd like to do a sales pitch right now but there's probably a rule against that.

Yeah, i build too. Dan's option is definalty the best. Most brands overcharge for inexpensive parts, and add on even more on to the price for software that you will never use. So just find someone that builds computers and tell them what you want and theyll give you a price, and it will be far less than buying streight out.

Take a look of this configuration, all the prices are from Newegg

Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6400 - Retail $237
Intel BOXDP965LTCK Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail $119.99
Mushkin 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model 996527 - Retail $214.99 ($199.99 after $15.00 Mail-In Rebate)
XFX PVT73GUGD3 Geforce 7600GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail $149.99
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250820AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM $79.99
Pioneer 16X DVD¡ÓR DVD Burner With 5X DVD-RAM Read Black ATAPI Model DVR-111D - OEM $31.99
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 SB0610 7.1 Channels PCI Interface Sound Card - Retail $71.95 (Optional, you can have the onboard audio instead of it.)
Antec Solo Black/Silver Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail $89.99

Total Cost is $995.89 and shipping cost is not include yet. But I am pretty sure that you can buy this configuration cheaper at somewhere else and the prices will be dropped a little bit lower if you are not going to buy it now. I hope this configuration is good enough for you.

Edit: Oh, btw, I just noticed that the case didn't come with a power supply, but you can look for the case that you like on Newegg, choose one come with the power supply, and maybe it will save you a little bit money.

Good build, except I would go for the e6300 core 2 duo and spend that little bit extra on a graphics card with a bit more oomph.

Don't be scared man, I'll let you (and the rest of y'all) in on a little secret, this build http://www.techist.com/showthread.ph...hreadid=120571 is my FIRST ever build. I've done stuff before like swap out mobo's and components out of one case and into another, and replaced CDroms, HDD, pus's etc, but never a complete build. As long as you know that your components will work with each other, then putting it together should be no (maybe some snags along the way) problem.

I have noticed that his aim is not on gaming, so faster cpu will be a good choice. 7600GT is enough to handle even directx game programming.
