hey guys i'm new to this forum and was hoping i can get expert advice on a new system i'm planning on buying to replace my 1.4 athlon with 768mb ram and 60gb hd. instead of building a computer on my own (more like with a friend who can help me) i found, what seems to be, a ridiculous deal from cyberpowerpc.com:
CASE: CyberPower X-Titan Tower 420Watt Case with 8 Open Bays & Side Window (BLACK COLOR)
CPU: (Sckt775)Intel® Core 2 Duo E6400 CPU @ 2.13GHz 1066FSB 2x1MB L2 Cache EM64T
MOTHERBOARD: (Quad-Core Supports) Asus P5W-DH I975X CrossFire Chipset LGA775 Supports Core 2 Duo CPU FSB1066 DDR2/800 Mainboard w/GbLAN, USB2.0, IEEE1394, &7.1Audio
MEMORY: (Req.DDR2 MainBoard)1GB (2x512MB) PC6400 DDR2/800 Dual Channel Memory (Corsair XMS2 Xtreme Memory w/ Heat Spreader)
VIDEO CARD: ATI Radeon X1950 Pro PCI-E x16 256MB VIDEO CARD
VIDEO CARD 2: NONE
LCD Monitor: NONE
HARD DRIVE: Single Hard Drive (320GB SATA-II 3.0Gb/s 16MB Cache 7200RPM HDD)
Data Hard Drive: NONE
Optical Drive: PIONEER DVR-111 DUAL FORMAT 16X DVD±R/±RW + CD-R/RW DRIVE DUAL LAYER (BLACK COLOR)
Optical Drive 2: SONY 16X DVD-ROM (BLACK COLOR)
SOUND: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO
also comes with:
-windows xp pro (with a free upgrade to vista business)
-enermax EG565P (important: will this be enough power and quiet?)
-PS2 microsoft multimedia keyboard
-PS2 microsoft intellimouse optical explorer 4.0A
-3 year warranty (which is standard for all their systems)
all for $1293.. which is $293 more than i originally wanted to spend on a new system.. plus i'll probably have to pay $65 for shipping since it's not one of the "free shipping" models.. so the total would be more like $1358.
i got this price by customizing a Cyberpower SLI GT.. funny thing is that when i customized other versions with the same specs i'd get a much higher price.
here is the link if u'd like to check what other options you feel i should' get instead of the ones i posted above: http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/infsligtc2d.asp?v=d
so what do you guys think?
***edit: the memory i'm getting with it is a 1GB (2x512MB) PC6400 DDR2/800 Dual Channel Memory (Corsair XMS2 Xtreme Memory w/ Heat Spreader) not "Value Select"
