Default OK how about this one?


I know its an emachine, my question is reading it it comes with what looks like a crappy vid card, but seems to have PCIe slots available. So this one look good for just putting a 7800gt nvidia card in and go?

Most of you have said the dell 9100 at about the same price, but with pent 4 dual core was not the way to go, so how about this one?

The specs may seem good, but odds are they are very cheap parts. I suggest you build one yourself (It was may seem difficult, but it really isn't)

Its not my confidence on building it, its finding the right parts to include at the price I have available. I can spend up to 1000.00 and have no idea where to start. I have looked at cases and cant even decide on a case much less the other parts needed. I think if I can get together a plan on what box, what mb, what cpu, and what mem, I think I could handle the rest.

The Specs of that eMachines aren't too bad for that price. If you configure that same PC at newegg.com it'll probably run you just about $600 to $650.

NO VIDEOCARD - onboard
NO SOUNDCARD - onboard
MOUSE -yes

not bad for someone who can't build a PC themselves
