Alright dude. It's not like I paid retail for it. My friend is a Computer Wholesaler. He found a goverment seizure auction that had like 100 of them. He preid open the cases, and he found some Quadro FX5800 and other video capture cards in them. those card are worth thousands of dolars each. He boght the lot l(ike 5grand in total lol), then removed the cards, sold them, and offered me one of the systems, cheap. I got my build, (See my Sig) for 350$, which i think is a good price. And i got that a while ago.
So STFU. I build and Scrap/Sell at tech shows computers for a student part time job, and i can assemble/scarp/disassemble a computer, and i have several thousand times in the past.
Please leave the thread, RIGHT NOW.
Intead of being helpfull, Like jsc, you just come here to flame, and be an ass.
I'm not disagreeing with you about Hp being a fail in general. But please don't flame me, and try to insult my technical knowlaege. I want you to show me a better system for 350$.
