  2. Nice build for $520, however he wants stuff from Frys Electronics :) So if you can duplicate that build at Frys, thats a good one to go with.
  3. I've made a build on frys, however there are few issues:

    1. I could not find any proper graphics cards at that price range.
    2. Nor could I find DVD drives

    @OP: Are you sure you cannot buy from anywhere else?
  4. I would need it to be from frys due to the fact i have a final to turn in this friday and since my last computer was stolen, I saw a good Asus video card for 120-140 just hoping frys has the stuff similar to it..
