I've been trying to build a PC for gaming and basic 3d animation for school. The only real requirement is that the CPU itself is under $1K before accessories... I've found a pretty decent deal on a Dell with a 21.5 inch HD monitor included, i just want to make sure that the hardware is worth the price tag....
The $9 flat rate shipping is a bonus, I've looked on IBuyPower and AvA Direct and the shipping just makes me wince...
