The PC I'm going to build soon (HOPEFULLY) cost $10 less than that, and has much better components. As recommended above, www.monarchcomputer.com will get you a high quality, high performance machine for a great price. The only better prices I know of is www.cyberpowersystem.com and www.ibuypower.com , which are said to have absolutely horrible service and low quality parts. Do business with those at your own risk.
