$700 System

Hey guys,

Just looking for a little feedback on a system I am thinking of building. I would really like to keep the budget as close to $700 pretax and shipping as possible. I just bought a new mouse, keyboard and monitor so this will involve the PC only.

CPU
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz

$134.99

I'm thinking of possibly jumping over the $700 mark just a tad to get a hexa core 3.2 Ghz version for $45 more than the one I listed.

I'm getting a brand new one from a friend for about $50. He bought one then didn't use it.
$50

Total Price: $609.95

Also I'll be getting Windows 7 64 bit so that will round it out to just over $700. What do you guys think. Any suggestions or is this ready to go?

Edit: Sorry final price with Windows 7 is just over $700. Not sure why I typed "under $700".

  1. isn't Windows 7 at least 189? ( Home Premium on Newegg ) the 119$ windows 7 is an upgrade, not a complete version.
  2. I could be missing something obvious, I'm no comp expert, but isn't this just regular Windows 7?

  3. That is Windows 7, but it is an OEM version. It will be no different than the full version in the way it operates or it's featuers, but there are some limitations. You cannot move the OEM version to another computer. With a full or upgrade version you can uninstall/format that computer and reinstall it on another.
  4. Good to know.
