Hello, the GPU went out of stock. And I wasn't able to find Windows for ~$100. Only the OEM, which is a cheap solution, but people say it doesn't come with a CD. Help? :)

I dont understand what you mean by no cd, oem means just the basic,the original.

$99.99. Also the 7750 is a new card and the drivers are unstable as of now, even though it is new architecture the 6770 is a reliable card.

plus shipping it's about $117. go with that. Other than that, you are golden.

CPU (combo with DVD burner): Pentium G620 [...] 6819116399 $70
GPU: $110
RAM: [...] 6820146748 $22
PSU [...] 6817371034 $60
Hard drive [...] 6822136098 $100
Motherboard: [...] 6813157241 $55
Case: [...] 6811119193 $45

Optical drive: $20

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium ~$100

plus shipping its a bit under $600

Thanks for the suggestions, but in every case, it seems that I lack a monitor, it goes over $600. Is there any way to include a build with a monitor?

About the CD, I read that Windows 7 OEM doesn't come with an install disk, but I guess I was wrong.

Just to clarify, Windows 7 OEM does come with an install disk.

Alright, thanks. But my other problem still remains, I cannot fit the monitor into my budget. :(
