So where is this magical "bergen county NJ" place?

at a 178th st in the bronx, there exists the George Washington Bridge. if you cross it, going from new york to new jersey, you are in bergen county. its the commuter state - owes its entire existence to new york city.

lone wolf and green p.c. thanks for the info. yon - i meant $1000. sorry for the confusion

green p.c. - thats an awesome site. i have to put the parts together myself right? i think i'm going to get the temperature guage too. basically, with the configuration that you wrote, i get a total of 4 fans right? with 4 fans, it should be the north pole in there.

u think i should half my ram to 512 and try to spend the extra money on the 17inch viewsonic lcd monitor?

correct me if i'm wrong, but the $1009 buys you a BUILT computer, no assembly required. The benefit of those types of providers is that you can really pick and choose what you want, and stay away from crap parts. And they got the looks...

you'd have to price it out, but it will probably be within $100 or less. At that price, it's really just a question of whether or not you want to take the time to build. When I built my system, it was more b/c it was a challenge, than to save a lot of money. Granted I saved a few bucks, but it also took a day of my time.
