    Computer Deal

    I highlighted the things that make it impossible to get at that price. 1g and you get all that? How do they do it? It seems like it is to good to be true.

    Is it cheaper to build your own computer by gettting parts individually? Or buying a system? When you buy a system do they give you like a package price which makes it cheaper than buying parts individually?

    You cannot build a computer on your own as cheap as those.

    The Athlon 64 game station with the MSI k8t is an awesome deal. That motherboard is the highest rated in that class.

    I would stay away from ECS and some Asus.

    I bought an Ebay computer with that mb and I've been thrilled with it. It would have cost me lots more cash to find, buy, and ship the parts.

    That is really fucking cheap? Maybe they buy large quantaties and have a huge stock load of them.

    these prices are from apower, i just went through quickly and grabbed whatever sounded like the paper add....http://www.a-power.com/

    not much of a diff to build your own and then you get exactly what you want.......I think we were getting a discount at apower for being on this forum tooo.....not sure if we still do though.

    Slap another 40$ on there. The memory is dual channel. Damn. I just built my own and I saw this ad in the flyer. It really angers me. After all my hard work. My system is around 906$, just the tower. No accessories liike nice speakers or anything. Yep, that's right. Life is unfair.
