That is a pretty good price for that build. Obviously you could do more if you throw a couple hundred more at it, but it's not bad as it is.

be ready to add a good 200 dollars onto that 679 lol

(if you plan on getting those widescreens)

700 for that isn't that great, everything is like 2 generations behind. You could get a current gen one for like 1000.


Divide et impera
it's decent as far as pre-built systems go.. but id still rather take a bundle from like tigerdirect as opposed to that

something like this

for $50 more:

750W PSU vs 600 W PSU
2.66 quad vs 2.93 dual
4 gb 1600 ram vs 4gb 800 ram
260 core 216 GPU vs 9800 GT
1TB hard drive vs 320 gb hard drive
as far as the case goes i dunno.. but just the graphics card upgrade is worth it

and here's a good cheap monitor to go with it

(coupon: WKF35JP9FR9BLQ)

brings the price down to $126 for a 22" full HDMI monitor

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more

    The side chat has nothing on the discord. it is not possible but the biggest thing on my wish list right now is a sidechat channel on the disord that hooks up to this...
