If you fancied trying your hand at building (which isn't difficult) then you could have a better setup for less.

tbh mate for best value you best off building your own computer. its really not that hard, just make sure you do plenty of research before pressing that pay button

Building your own will product the best bang for your buck. It really isn't THAT hard if you have a basic understanding of a computer. Basic I mean, yeah that is a CPU, that is RAM, a hard drive, etc. You cut out their parts markup and their total system markup. AND we can help you pick, NON crappy parts.

Ummm. There are check boxes, are you leaving these as is or selecting different components? I see 4 graphics cards and only 1 of them is a lower end gaming card, the 9800GT. Other than that, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive isn't going to get you to far. There is also no OS checked by default.

Man just give in to the Geek Squad Forums here and build one on your own. Of course, we can walk you though it step by step...

How much do you want to spend?

i don't see an os in there but i configured pretty much the same thing on newegg, except a different dvd burner that's pretty much the same one and a better mother board and it came up to $690 bucks so it's $100 less to do it yourself. if you do it yourself and spend 790 at newegg, (without the os) you can get something much better with a better case and psu (the psu on that site is a problem waiting to happen) and even a better graphics card.

if it's for gaming then you should choose a stronger gpu..
considering that you have a 24" monitor..
but since they don't offer anything better than the 9800gt..
it's up to you..

frankly speaking not worth it..
you dont need a video professor to learn how to put things together.
Do you own a Gundam? Gundam is trickier. Even the Lego is trickier

+1 not worth it. You can build something better for $800.

As you can tell, you're not going to get anyone in a "Homebuilt Systems" forum to tell you to buy a pre-built computer. :)

$800 for gaming? Here you go: flexible case build suggestions, with and without OS:

Base components: (same for both builds)

Cases:
Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case- $60
or
COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP - $75
or
Antec 900 - $108
or
Cooler Master Sniper - $140

PSU:
CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready - $70
Amazing Deal!!!

HDD:

n x WD 640 GB drive - $70

Optical drives:
LG DVD burner 22x - $25

Sub total:
$225-305

Performance Components:

CPU and MOBO combo (DRR2):
AMD 720 BE + Gigabyte 790X - $220
AMD 940 BE + gigabyte 790X combo - $270
RAM:
G.Skill DRR2 1066 Mhz PC8500 - $60

or

CPU and MOBO combo (DDR3):
AMD 720 BE + ASUS 790GX - $260
RAM: G.Skill DDR3 1333 Mhz low latency - $60

GPU:
2 x ATI Radeon 4770 in CF - $200
or
4870- $150-200
or
2 x 4850's in CF - $190-22 (strongest option - will beat a single GTX 285 when overclocked)

Sub total: $450 - 640


Build without OS: $675 and up -

Vista Home Premium 64-bit - $99

Personally if you have to get an OS I would go with the AMD 720 BE and the 4850's or 4770 in CF - that will give you the best bang for the buck performance wise with a 24 inch monitor.

Match those build it yourself PCs with store bought versions at the same price:
Dare you to find one that matches performance and price - I don't think it can be done!

Dell for example:
http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.asp...

For $900 you get an old as heck dual core AMD system - basically sucks big time

To even come close to matching the builds suggested here you have to spend $1600:

Holly friggin Molly - that sucks so hard - now you see why we build them ourselves..

That build isn't much better than a pre-built. You have an IDE DVD burner, a slow older model HD, and a HEC bundled PSU that would work better as a door stop.

Fortunately i have built and worked with such 'doorstop' PSU and for a single HD4770 it good to go :p  Err wrong click for the IDE ODD so can swap out but curious: could you point out a pre buit with the same config/price point?
May 9, 2009 9:54:00 AM

nerrawg, two 4770's out perform two 4850's.
