He|| i've got alot of free time ill build that exact same system.

it came out to 875 without the case cause i couldn't find a price on it but i gave up after 1 google search and guessed it would cost around 40$. so its about 200$ overpriced and the thing about dual core doubles the proccessor speed is funny as He|| cause someone poseted tht they got to 7.1ghz cause they had a dual core CPU.

50 Keyboard and speakers? IDK

I feel sorry for the people who buy that. Then i would slap them and tell them to do some research and find out what they are buying before going through spending more than 1K on something. jeesh

i too sent him a message... here's his response....

I don't what it is with you people but I'm getting real tired of listening to you all talk about something that you know nothing about. Instead of wasting my time, but Digitalcrack and tell him the same as you're telling me, he'll probably tell you to mind your own business.

You're free to make any report that you wish to eBay, apparently their a little smarter and can read and comprehend what the listing means.
EDIT: and through ebay, a few min later i got this (note, i registered just to buy an ipod a couple months ago, seller didnt comment)
Quote:
For someone with ZERO feedback...LOL..bug someone else and stop harrassing us before we report you to eBay

rofl anyways i just sent them a message saying that its not a 6Ghz CPU lol

wow quick response

While you're doing your reporting, report digitcrack as well as he's been doing it for a long time and I guess eBay has the brains to figure it out. Here is his listing, 6849249377 and check out his feedback as well. Buyers seem to understand what they are buying. Now have a nice day
