it all comes out 700 bucks with shipping and taxes because of the combo's
have couple of questions.
he Hard Drive and the Cd burner are oem. whats the difference. do i need Sata cables? or the motherboard comes with them ? am i going to be able to connect the hard drive and cd burner right away ?
If you still have some money left, here are some ideas. They will all cost you more but you get better bang for the buck IMO.
1. upgrade to HD 4850 (faster)
2. upgrade to WD6400AAKS 640GB for $25 (faster, lots bigger)
3. upgrade to PC Power & Cooling 610W for $20 (better, supports Crossfire)
4. upgrade to P5Q Pro for $50 (more features, better chipset, Crossfire)
