I just recently bought a beastly computer that I have listed below. I haven't gotten it yet, but the specs are down there anyways. I'm saying I'm new to "REAL gaming" because I've been using a Celeron @ 2.4Ghz, 512mb 400mhz RAM, Geforce 5700LE, 40gig harddrive, and some random low end motherboard for ages. Can't quite consider that a quality gaming computer nowadays. Anyways, hola.

Well I already had the monitor, but I could probably go to only one 8800GTX

After a rough estimation of prices, I come out to about even as if I were to buy and build it on my own, so I don't quite see where I overpaid really. The 3016.75 included shipping also, which could be 60-70.

lol, amen. But I feel as if I didn't. I know I didn't really need two 8800GTX's at the moment... but that's simply how I roll and I live with my parents still, so I can afford it considering my one and ONLY payment is half of the car insurance payment, lmao (my parents pay the other half).

Rough estimation:

Thermaltake Armor Case (Black) -$150
eVGA 680i Motherboard -$250
E6700 Processor w/Zalman Fan -$550 with fan
2GB PC6400 4-4-4-12 -$250
eVGA 8800GTX in SLI Configuration (x2) -$1250
2x320GB Seagate in RAID-0 -$185
750W Thermaltake PSU -$200
Dual LiteOn DVD-RW -$60
19-in-1 Memory Card Reader -$20
Fan Control & Temperature Guage -$20
Windows XP Home -$60

TOTAL: $2995.00
So I got free labor and paid $21.75 for shipping as I see it.
