Post Wow.... a deal..

OK, check this out. I have a great deal. would you buy this computer? Check out this deal I've found... It's a brand new computer with an AMD 900 MHz processor, 20 gig hard drive (7200 RPM) and 256 megs of RAM with Windows XP. GET THIS. THE PRICE IS 599. I don't see ANYBODY who can match that. It's almost insane. What a price... Of course that's not all of the features, but that's the basic stuff. There's also a really cool financing deal thingy (I don't quite understand it yet) that makes it really easy to pay for. What would you say?


Someday I will be the most powerful jedi ever.

Yeah. It's from this brand new company. Really small, but pretty good stuff. They build (appearently) custom made computers for you and then sell them for really low (almost wholesale) prices. With my Voodoo 3 (hopefully also a GF3 pretty soon) it'll be a really fun machine to play with...

Which AMD processor does it include? I would suggest building your own, or at least buying a barebones system and doing the rest yourself. The advantage to doing this is that you'll be sure to get exactly what you want. Alot of these places will sell you a computer that has little to no upgrading capabilities. If the system already has everything that you want, go for it. I know I can't wait until I build a new system, this 800 MHZ Duron isn't as powerful as I thought that it would be. Some of my friends are running almost double the framerates on their GHZ machines(both Pentium and new AMD's).

Well let's take a look.

Athlon T-bird 900Mhz OEM (Is this place even giving you a T-bird or just regular athlon?): 45 + 10 shipping = $55

ECS K7S5A mobo (I assume you don't have a athlon DDR mobo?): 62 + 5 shipping = $67

256MB Crucial PC2100 DDR RAM: $29.68 free shipping
Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 20 Gig 7200 rpm HD OEM: 76 + 8 shipping = $84

WinXP Home upgrade: $99 (Assuming you have either 98, 98SE, or ME CD still in your possession for the reinstall)

Total = 334.68

Now, that's assuming you still have a decent case w/ Athlon-approved Power Supply, a CD-ROM drive or burner, soundcard, and floppy that you can use again. Only thing you might really need is the case with athlon-approved PSU, and with a whole list here to choose from I'm sure you can find a decent case/psu for another 55 bucks. You'd still be under 400 dollars.

All those parts I listed are also quality parts from respected online vendors (which are probably better than what they'll stick you with);I didn't even choose the cheapest parts and the lowest prices!

So, if you really want to pay them 200 dollars or more to put your PC together for you... that is your choice.

Btw, this is being moved to our off-topic forum here. This forum is only for the dicussion of Jedi Knight 2 and related topics.
