So this little ad was right on the Home Page of TD. I thought I would check it out.

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

everything's good except the quad core the original phenoms where nothing too right about.

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!)

I thought it was a good deal until I realised it had no gpu

"Improved taskbar and full-screen previews"

seriously?


OT: aren't the original phenoms bad overclockers which can double as home heaters...idk never owned one.

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.

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