canadian stuff is always more expensive than US, lol. anyways you can probably cut the price of this computer by half if you but the parts used.


anitec sells the 3600 x2 amd 3800 x2 is the same price. BUT!!!!!!! i am not sure what core they are. so you should phone in and ask if its a brisbane

Or, since she obviously won't notice a single different between a core 2 duo OC'ed to 5 ghz or a Celeron D, you could just get this Biostar P4M800 Pro M7 Socket 775 Barebone Kit Intel Celeron D 360 OEM ATX Mid-Tower Case with a 450 Watt Power Supply in Canada at TigerDirect.ca and throw in the rest of the necessary components.
