too much money for that RAM IMO. MSI boards suck. Price of the video card is ok.

Dont know what brand you got but here is one on new egg.

Your board, OEM, shouldn't cost more than $55; you got a decent deal on the card - if it's the MSI - as I haven't seen that retailed anywhere for less than $130.
Depends on the brand of the RAM; but I wouldn't pay $65 for any DDR 266 512.

I'd say he gave you a discount.. but not a great discount.

SHAWN, the link you gave posted his ram at 34.85 a stick (the lowest price NewEgg offered for that type of RAM). Two sticks would be $69.70, not including tax. So he saved a small amount of money from the guy.
And $65 ain't bad for a gig of RAM. He did fine.

His only shortcoming was getting the DDR266, which is the slowest version of DDR still being produced and sold. It's probably plenty for him, though.

Where do you base that on? MSI is doing very well in both market and popularity. Their boards offer a wide range of features at a low cost, with plenty of bundled extras, and a service department that is better than average. I've been running MSI boards happily in many machines.

Of course, it all depends also on the model board he got.

Yeah, the price he got for the vid-card is about average. It's not an awsome card, but it's enough.

pwjayleedy, you did fine. You got some decent components for an average PC. As long as you don't expect to be doing any hard-core gaming (Doom3/FarCry/HL2...on full settings) yer fine.

You mean $130 for a gig? He said $65 each for the 512 sticks.

Ah, missed that second "ea." My bad.

Saw the first one and figured he meant each stick had 512mb. Didn't get the second each.

$65 retail probably isn't that bad...depending on where he got it from.

I think it is not the best deal in the world. But it is a computer shop, and they have the overhead they have to pay and then their profit, so I guess it is typical. They usually rip you off at those little computer shops, I know mine did. Thats why I stopped going there. Newegg took all of his buisness!
