Q9300 Top of the Line Gaming Rig

post #1 of 2

So I was justing checking up on the local computer store's latest hardcore gaming PC builds. Who wants to pay 1150$ for a Asus P5K-E motherboard paired with a Q9300, 4gb of modern DDR2 ram and a 500gb hdd?

Oh and btw:

[video card] Upgrade Options
(These listings are additional to the starting base price)
I mean wow 1150$ doesnt get you a video card? I know the pricing is a bit old but still I don't remember parts costing that much back then. I sure hope this is just incompitense on their part not updating the site, but I would'nt put it past them.

Every time I whent in there they have tried to sell me some old stock they have laying around.

I remember walking in about a year ago looking to buy a power supply for an emergency (otherwise I would never buy something from them). They offered me a 500watt for about 100$ and the 550watt was around 150 or 160$. They were not even 80 plus certified but according to them "they are pretty efficient and have always worked for us."

Another thing was that the power supplies they were selling were the same Startech PSU's from when my dad bought me a single core athlon computer there when I started highschool, almost 6 or 7 years ago.

Why is it that no matter what field, be it computers or auto repair shops, there are always people looking to prey on the weak and rip people off? Guess stealing is as good a way to make a living as any other and getting people to give you their money is the best way.
