Default ascendtech = KILLER DEAL ! .... or not ??

Anyone used them before ?

please tell me these guys are reliable...because they have some awesome deals.

custom built PCs with operating systems for quite a bargain

"+getMessage("iPrintVerKit")+"

MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-G31M-S2L
CPU: E6850
300GB Sata harddrive
Samsung 16x dvd-rw drive
ALC888 7.1-Channel Windows Vista Premium Level HD Audio
black case with 400w power supply (probably junk)
2 80mm high speed case fans
basic keyboard and mouse with speakers
comes WITH vista basic !
also comes with 1 gig of ram...but I'm gona upgrade anyway.

total price:582.61

it gives you the option for more ram or a video card...but I can get better and cheaper ram @ newegg.

you can basicly pick and customize anything on the rig...

All I gota do is grab more ram, a video card and a decent CPU cooler and i'm GOLDEN

Look at the Motherboard, cheap RAM, and the Integrated Graphics... seems right to me

Now Dell actually has gotten a lot better in the grand scheme of things.

They do make some surprisingly nice laptops at a pretty affordable price point.

And their lcd's are also very nice.

Aren't there LCD's still made by LG or something? I remember hearing about that awhile ago.

Plus I was mainly talking about their desktops. I just don't get why they have everything so overpriced when you are getting the-exact-same-thing...

But yeah, their laptops are pretty decent
