That is a good deal. Only two PCI slots, that might be a problem for me.

That's a good price, "Awesome Processor", and decent Ram to upgrade if need be.

I buy a lot of my stuff from this place.

oh, I see. I was confused. I have never had to deal with them. I have bought memory from them with no problem. I was thinking "dealing with" and "buying from" were synonymous.

I bought memory direct from crucial. Very very happy with service, speed, and price.

Stay away from the rebate offers, I'm still trying to get a couple resolved from Christmas presents.

it's early so maybe I'm missing something, but that is a system without hard drive and OS right?

it comes with a 200gb EIDE drive.

The deal is a kit. That means its completely unassembled. No software comes with it ( other than the free copy of Juarez )

Not a bad deal! I have the mobile version of that graphics card in my laptop, very nice for basic gaming! Never purchased from them, but people seem to have good luck and suggest that company.

I have bought a lot from www.Newegg.com and www.zipzoomfly.com and have been very satisfied.

Oh and Linux is free so you can always install that if you dont have an OS to put on it.

the rebate offers are sort of a pain , but they go through with it and send you money back. It does take a few months like all rebates.
