I don't know how that would've costed you $1600

Did you buy parts from a website such as Newegg, or get it prebuilt? You could buy those parts from newegg for less than $1000.

Well maybe so, i bought the parts from MWAVE on there buid it yourself sight. I shopped newegg and several other sights and mwave did give me the best deal in november. There are some other componenets that arent listed such as the keyboard and mouse, my 7.1 surround sound speaker system, and they put it together for me.
