OF COURSE NEWEGG.COM

Found a better deal

CPU:Sempron 3100+ 754: $82.00
Ram:Rosewill 512MB PC3200 $37.49
Case:Linkworld ATX case $17.00
HDD:WD caviar 80gb $48.50
MOBO:TUL ATI X200 $45.00
DVD DRIVE:Lite-ON DVD X16 $18.99
_______
$248.98
They didnt include w/shipping Tax=$301.70
Which would put them over
alot.
Just took me five minutes love how easy Newegg Is

Also that MOBO needs a GFX card too.God they get paid to do that and dont even put much effort into it
