that much for those specs? I agree - build your own! ( for parts )

I could build that for about 850-900

p4 also uses sdrams and ddr's....older p4's in that case. but i agree with the rest of them,...much cheaper to build your own. i'd like to suggest not to use sdrams.

Default Try this

If your a NOOB to building PC's I suggest going to and pulling up one of their mach V configurations. Print the config that looks good to you and go to a price out theexact same comps. Chances are you can build a ridiculous system for under 1500 bucks (2000 if you want to go extremem on the video card and RAM). PLus, falcon-nw builds some ridiculously fast machines..... I would buy from them if they didn't mark everything up about 300%
