That looks overpriced to me. I'm assuming you're buying from dell?

EDIT: Maybe not... How much do those sound cards usually go for?

Indeed, i have bad luck with building computers. Nothing goes right really. With dell i can know nothin will go wrong. Ive had my laptop for 3 years, no problems, my dads since 01, no problems. Ide love to build one again, but i feel like i need something i can reccomend on. Im not an extreme gamer, so the 8800 would be perfect for me. And im trying to get into graphic designs.

That still is pretty cheap for a dell with those specs,
However, if u build it urself, you will have a superior system

I know i could build a beastly computer with $1400, but if I BUY the parts, i gotta buy it all myself. I only get to pay half IF i get a dell. So im only spending $700 on it

OK, then get the dell, then buy a new mobo and OS and make it a custom the hardware is good, just the fact that it is a dell, so you can't overclock it to really make use of that quad.
