So, I've been dealing the past four years with Dells, and have finally gotten tired of their short-life, low-grade machines.
I've been planning to build a new box with these specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 2.33GHz 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor
GIGABYTE GA-EP45C-UD3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
mushkin 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
SAPPHIRE 100265L Radeon HD 4830 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card
Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W ATX12V v2.01 SLI Ready Power Supply
and a run of the mill no-power supply case.
Already have monitor and peripherals.
Total cost: about $605 USD.
So... is this a good idea or did I miss something?
