I would like 19" to save money, but if there is a good priced 22"(that's the one i have for my current OEM DELL) it would be better.

take your pic, not the best prices but it gives you a rough idea

22" can be had for $200 flat (maybe less) if you look at the right places.

Hmm, so $200+850(system that Axtacized mentioned above) ~~ $1050. I think that will do. It's much cheaper than I ever thought . Thanks boys and maybe some girls.

Is newegg.com the best source to purchase computer components?

sorry!!! it's $775 without the case and cd drive and operating system!!

but since u have cd drive..

itll be 775 + case money + operating system money.. =\\
could add up to 900..... since operating system is still in their 100s.. i think

you would not want to know how i get my operating system. =)

There are money other places with better deals, but i think if you're building a whole new computer, i would stick with newegg.. since they don't charge tax.. sometimes tigerdirect have these awesome deals on their barebone computers.. i helped my friend build one, it was 650$ with a 8800 GS (50$ cheaper than 8800 GT, perform probably 15-30% slower, no idea) [also that is the price without the operating system included]



I used to order from tigerdirect, but i stopped.. after my brother lost 4,000$ on his credit card.. and that was his "online credit card" but.. it was his fault for not using paypal

newegg is the best. Best prices, best support, best shipping.

and yeah, building a custom PC is a lot cheaper than buying a Dell... only catch is you have to be witty enough to know how to troubleshoot which Ive had to do a couple times.... but we all do and thats what forums are for!

Here is an example build for you:
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 - OEM ... $199.99
  • Motherboard: DFI Lanparty DK P35-T2RS ... $129.99
  • GFX Card: EVGA 8800GTS G92 512MB ... $259.99
  • PSU: Corsair CMPSU-550VX 550 Watt... $94.99
  • RAM: G.Skill (2x2GB) DDR2 1000 (PC2 8000) ... $84.99
  • Hard Drives: 2 X WD Caviar SE16 250GB AAKS ... $125.98
  • OS: Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP1 OEM ... $99.99
  • Monitor: Acer AL2215Wbd 22" LCD ... $229.99
  • CPU Heatsink: Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme ... $56.99
  • Fan (for above): Yate Loon 88CFM ... $5.95

Everything is from a Newegg Public Wish list, except for the Ultra-120 Extreme and Yate Loon fan which are from Petra's Tech Shop.

The total comes to $1288.85 for the above components.

This leaves you a little over $200 for a case, any extra case fans or accessories you may want, and shipping charges. (In order to meet your $1500 budget.) The rest of the components (keyboard/mouse, speakers, DVD drive, etc.) you said you already had. I included 2 hard drives to setup a RAID array, which will be faster than a single drive.

I understand this is towards the high end of your budget. If you'd like to lower the cost, you may switch back to an 8800GT and/or opt for a single hard drive, which could save you ~ $150-$175. There are also a few other components that could be changed. Let me know if you'd like to lower the cost some more.

(PS: There are also 2 mail-in-rebates totaling $45, if you'd like to minus that from the total.)

Let me know if any of the numbers are incorrect.

Choggs nailed it with the system specs. I prefer his over the previously posted system. He chose some better OCing components, like the 2x2Gb DDR2 1000 ram and the DFI motherboard. Just be aware that the DFI has many bios options. If you want a OCer friendly board, go with the Gigabyte P35 DS3R motherboard.
