      600 or 700 dollars might not sound cheap, but 600 dollars worth of name brand parts is way better than a 600 dollar compaq, hp, dell, etc. s that will slow down or break down within a year or two.

      Keyboards? We don't need no stinkin keyboards! I do all my computing by just cutting and pasting using a mouse. Like this message for example. Sure it took me 45 minutes to compose but at least I saved money by not having to buy a keyboard.

      Ben is right, you can have a completely usable system for $335.

      Let's see:

      Motherboard: Completely optional. Unnecessary waste of money.
      CPU: I can count. Not needed.
      Memory: I remember stuff therefore also not needed.
      Video Card: I don't need some machine creating images for me. I have a good imagination. Also not needed.

      Voila! The ultimate computer for $335. Thanks Ben! (please don't ban me)

      #11 the type that has one keyboard per computer. Fine, I'll admit my keyboard collection pales in comparison to your vast keyboard collection. I am so ashamed!

      If you really wanted, a cheap-o build it your self computer could cost under $300. (if you had some basics like monitor & input devices) but once you start putting in higher end components, then the price starts to skyrocket and Dell & HP start looking like a real option, buck for buck.

      What in the hell are you guys complaining about? You look at the final price and decide that it's a horrible deal? This is an AMAZING base to start from to build a great computer! I know we are all geeks and have most of these components laying around already, but think about someone who HAS A LIFE and is looking to purchase every component NOW. Antec 900 case?!?! SWEEET!!! 500W power supply for $15?! MONITOR!?! 1.5TB drive?!? Obligatory DVD writer and cool mouse?!? Get off of your frickin high horses!

      I bought the 900 case. Almost went for the PS. Already had a VX Revolution. Great mouse except it has a nastry habit of developing a double-click problem (as in it unintentionally double-clicks). One of the plastic pins inside wears out with time and causes accidental, intermittent double-clicking. Happened on mine after a year.
