go to www.cyberpowerinc.com and www.ibuypower.com they have the best prices on pre-build computers. many computers there are just as good as custom built machines and cost even less than custom-built!

Well I chose those parts (similar in power) from TigerDirect.com and came up with $1024.I say take it.It's not a bad computer.It should last you a number of years (like mine has ).If you do get a better price for the same setup you mentioned , then take it.You could squeeze in more Memory and a bigger Hard Drive (secondary).You may even save enough for a Printer , some Speakers , or just grab even more memory.

if your in africa is this US dollars $1600? if it is this other computer you are choosing is horribly overpriced too. it seems you are choosing the wrong places to buy.
