I don't know. Doesn't sound like the best deal to me.

Got anything personal against building?

To tell you the truth I prefer to either build the computer myseld or get it built for me. My current computer is custom built and I've really had no problems (only with 2 younger sibling I would get alot of virus' and spyware). But like I said I am only gonna be getting 400 at minimum, so building one is out of the question for me right now. BUt I did stumble across that one posted above and for less then 400 it seems pretty good for me right now. Of course I will upgrade the video card to a BFG Labs nVidea GeFore 256 MB (model undecided yet) and the soundcard to a Creative Labs sound card (most likely the Audigy 2 model), Ohh yeah just to mention the store that is selling it is a computer parts store, so its built by them.

But right now a custom built computer is over the budget
