It's not wussing out, don't let the people here think it is. I had my computer built by a technician in my city, for the same exact price I would have paid on newegg, if not cheaper.
My parents didn't trust me to build it myself, and it wasa ok, because I have the same exact system I would have had for less, and they guy did some nice cable management too
Mine was cheaper because I got windows xp and windows office for completely free, I was fortunate on that part.
Anyways, I thought I got a good deal.
