    You don't actually need 8gb of RAM, threw it in since it's so cheap. But you can grab a 4gb kit instead and use the $25 savings to upgrade HD to a 1tb Spinpoint F3 if you want more HD space.

    This is assuming you don' t need OS. If you need an OS too, then it'll be a bit trickier to do.
  2. ya i need an OS too, so that brings it to 700$
  3. Drop RAM to a 4gb ripjaw kit, that'll shave $25 off the price.

    Then grab win 7 64 bit OEm from here. Total ends up $645 after rebates.

    For many companies this is true, hence why I only recommend ones that actually do work.

    EVGA and XFX have built their reputations upon their quality of service, hence they're fine.
