Well you could go in there and haggle (sp?) for a better price.

It is a buisness in the end, and they probally only make enough to live off of.

Yes those prices don't make sense at all. The SLI system is barely any more money than the AGP and yet it has all the same stuff and more. Another video card, a better motherboard, and another 160gb hard drive! Either they badly messed up their quote or they just feel like giving you a really good deal.

I have changed my mind, get SLI.

Well as trifid said they are a small shop and they are only trying to earn a living. It may be a good marketing ploy for those less advanced at computers and say this has got just about all the same stuff except it is missing some performance in a graphics card. I don't know but I won't fall into that trap

Yes but i forgot the case was modded out and had a side window. It had a sound responsive neon kit with two cathodes and a blue light on the psu fan as well as all the other stuff - and don't forget lol i would have to buy like tools and anti magnetic bands or whatever lmao - it works out around the same price i think :amazed: - oh and the psu and heatsink were aftermarket


thanks for vlookign though

I found your monitor, it is more expensive. They won't be making alot of profit from it.
