That price isn't the greatest. I got my msi kt266a pro 2 with 1700xp retail boxed for only $99.95 at Fry's. I'd feel more comformatable getting a board and cpu at newegg and spending a few dollars more for their service. The kt133a is an old chipset that is still used for sdram. Sdram is pretty cheap right now, but not a solution for the long run. I would call Tiger direct about the pre-assembly.
