There ain't no more money in computers. They have become a commodity. I spent $350 on this one. It's getting kind of slow. I'll probably go nuts and spend $600 on my next one.
I just built my latest. P4 3.0, Intel 850GBF mobo, 1GB of PC3200, 16X dual layer NEC drive, 200 GB SATA HDD, and an FX5700 VGA. Paid under $600.... Knowledge (and online shopping) is power!
This one deserves the 'obvious observation of the day' award.
