Is this a good deal?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Intel® Core™2 Duo desktop processor E6300; Intel® Viiv™ technology; DL DVD±RW/CD-RW drive; 250GB hard drive; 2GB PC4200 DDR2 memory; Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005; 9-in-1 digital media manager; 17" Gateway LCD Monitor; Generic Keyboard and Mouse; PNY Verto GeForce 7900 GS 256MB PCI Express Graphics Card = $1,000.

Upside: Warranty, and I can get it tomorrow at Best Buy, It's cheap, also I can Change the Mobo and OS LATER for cheap to get an overclocker board and Vista.

Downside: I can't overclock the CPU and Ram, It's not from newegg.com

No, this is with a monitor/mouse/keyboard. Also, there's the ups and downs, in other words, I organized my last post a little. I would like to add a question...

Should I just upgrade to this mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138040 and XP Pro (for game desinging)??? Wouldn't take near the hit to my paycheck.

I am building a similar setup and it cost about the same. The spec and prices are listed as below (i actually posted this few hours ago)

CPU
E6300 + Zalman 9500
247.24
estimated Dec 1

Mobo
GA-P965-DS3
145.30
shipped

Mem
PQI turbo 1gig
97.41
shipped - arrived Nov 28

Gpu
evga 7600 GT
216.49
-110
estimated Dec 12

Hdd
Seagate SATAII 250 gig
73.61
shipped - arrived

Psu
Antec Neo HE 550W
75.76
shipped - arrived

Case
Antec P180
119.06
-40
shipped - arrived

Total:
824.87


The only difference is yours is 7900GS and mine is 7600GT ( i saw 7900GS go about 130 AR)
and i have 1 gig rather than 2. (i saw 2 gig OCZ rams go about 200 PC2 800)
DVD burner (30 dollars?)
and 17 inch monitor.

If you can cut down on case and power supply ( i love pretty cases ), you might make it around 1000 with 19 inch monitor (which was 99.99 AR).

The price above is including shipping and tax (california sux )


If you want to go through the trouble to wait on parts to go on sale and assemble it, i think you can get a decent setup around the same price.

So i am saying, it won't get any cheaper, but it will be better if you can build it yourself.
