Not a bad setup in my opinion. What do you think?

Looks pretty good at first glance, however it requires a CPU cooler, as the CPU is OEM (which is not mentioned in the ad, very dishonest TD!)

A micro ATX mobo, Phenom 1, no name 450W P/S, DDR2, and no mention of a gpu? Thats what some people shell out $400.00 for.

It isn't worth $400 though. The price is artificially inflated by the crap memory they are using. I'd say maybe $300 worth of parts are there.

I love how they advertise "jaw-dropping gaming" on a Radeon 4200 IGP... and their "video upgrade" is a Radeon 4670 for $70.

Burning books is like burning bras; after the adrenaline rush of the symbolic moment wears off all you're left with is a pile of ashes and unsupported boobs.

It makes me want to punch a marketer with a hammer everytime I see completely bogus advertising like the "jaw dropping gaming" part.
