Oh yeah! I was just looking around on websites and i came to a website that told you how to build your own pc. Im definitly building my own within the next couple of months. Its much cheeper then buying one. I can get...
Athlon XP 1700
A cool case
A good motherboard
40 gig 7200 rpm hard drive
52x cdrom
floppy
64mb Geforce 3
that live 5.1 sound card
256mb of ddram

All that for about $700 i already have a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

On my other post that comp costed $999 and it wasn't as good as this one plus i dont have to pay the shipping and handling.

What do you guys think that is a good deal right? If you can recommend different parts tell me.
Thanks

Seems good, but get 512 MB ram, you'll notice the difference, especially if u run win xp. Also Why not get a CD-RW or DVD-Drive right away instead of a regular CD-Drive?

I got my comp (Minus the vid card) for $750 CDN dollars from this site..

http://www.pcwent.com

I think they ship to the US. So, even if you do get it shipped & don't build it on your own, it is still hela cheap.
