Would you consider building the rig yourself if we picked out parts?

Srry, Im in no way qualified to do that,. And, geographically were not close. He wants to get something prepackaged for ease. I know its a compromise, and not how I would do it, but I m just trying to make sure he doesnt get ripped off, so its unfortunately , Best buy, compusa, or cosco for him,, Or Id imagine a gateway or dell.

So online deals (like Dell) are no option? THey're often a little bit better/cheaper than the boxes you buy in stores.

Let me check those stores though.

I would trust a local small computer store 10x more than Bestbuy and co. in terms of ripoff...

Ok, from Bestbuy:
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....prd62600050009

Gateway 3800+ Desktop with 19" LCD Monitor, Printer, Cable & Surge Protector $759.97

AMD X2 3800+
1GB RAM
Onboard video
19" monitor

Pretty reasonable deal. And if the video is too slow, you can easily add a dedicated card (7500GT for like $110 or so)

Mh'm I would have to disagree there... When my Nana(Grandmother) went to buy a computer, she was offered a laptop by a local store... for £2000 and she was like "But the man said it had 128mb of Ram and onboard graphics!"... Me and My Dad were like... O_o.

Even PC WOrld, which is rip off city was a lot cheaper and better....

Of course it depends which store

Here in town is a store that does not sell PCs, but only parts. However, they have everything to build a PC, and their prices are fairly competitive (ok, more expensive than Newegg, but parts are cheaper than at Best Buy). They charge $10 for a complete assembly. Guess we have different experiences

Lmao.
I've tried 3 local stores..
And the assembly was like £50-60($100-120ish) and a generic fan was like £4 on its own...
And a 450W, fairly generic power supply, was around £60($120ish)!
So yeah.. We must have completely different experiences..

ty chozart again,, No, Dells would be fine, but from what I saw, that best buy deal looks pretty good,. Thats a low end pci-e vid card, but as long as its pci-3 it can be upgraded.
