Asus M2N-E SLI Socket AM2 Barebone Kit - AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ 2.80GHz OEM, 2GB DDR2 PC6400, ATX Mid-Tower Case, 600 Watt Power Supply at TigerDirect.com

Thanks guys.
honestly I think thats a good deal, add a good Fan, Video card and Peripherals and what not.. and you have got a killer build...

Don't really think it matters.

I don't care what their warehouse looks like...as long as they get my parts when I order them at a great deal.

As long as you never actually go to one of their outlets, yea they are fine. Their stores are just awful however. Why do I have to wait in a line for a half hour to get ram I can clearly see on the wall behind the counter? /rant

i was in there looking at the new X38 boards...and i had a guy come up to me trying to sell me one of his computers he builds from his business....i played along with it for a while...then i eventually ended up telling him what all i have....he was like "oh" and just walked away.

Haha. I asked an employee where they keep the thermal paste and if they had any arctic silver. You can guess the response... complete confusion.

tigerdirect has a lot of really good deals when its a holiday of some sort, but I will never buy online from anywhere other then newegg. maybe clubit if i were getting a q6600 cause they guarentee g0. but thats it.

my stories of newegg's fantabulous customer service (shortened versions):

bought a x1600 Pro, died after half a year, oc'd it too much xD, rma'd it through newegg, they were out of stock of the cards, so they gave me the original msrp from when i bought it, not what it was at the moment. (about a 50 dollar difference)

my ECS board, the cmos bracket broke so the battery wouldn't stay in so i returned it, and since it was faulty anyway they took away the restocking fee and gave me all my monies back

also they have normal people talking to you so you don't have to deal with crazy indian people. nothing against indian people (<3 verny + krazyq) its just when i have to talk to them about something computer related i want to reach through the phone and pop thier heads...

The hinges on my brother's refurbished laptop from Tigerdirect started cracking after about a year...and Tigerdirect gave him a gift certificate for what he paid for the laptop...which meant he got a much better laptop.
