Toms members are way to smart for what? You make it sound as if I am trying to scam someone geez. FYI...I too can put this system together for cheaper than when I first built it...so can ANYONE who builds systems! I think you need to read into my post a little better, I never said it is WORTH $2500 at today's prices....(and for the record that DID include a monitor...a 24" HD monitor)...however as my add says, the monitor is NOT included in the sale. What boggles MY mind, is the fact that there are still people out there that just HAVE to say negative things. If ya don't like what I am offering, DRIVE THRU! Thanks.
P.S., This add was more geared towards someone who may NOT know how to build a system, but instead looking for a nice setup that is already tried and true.
