The time has come for all you holdouts to start buying up what you need to build your system for the new year. I just glanced through our exclusive PC Builder and was frankly amazed at what you can put together using today's deals, mostly from NewEgg.com. Everything below is $335 total after rebates, just add Memory/CPU/Motherboard/Video.

Acer X193Wb Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor = $100
Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 ST31500341AS 1.5TB Hard Drive = $130
Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case = $60
Thermaltake Purepower W0100RU 500W ATX 12V 2.0 Power Supply = $15
Logitech VX Revolution Black 8 Buttons Tilt Wheel Mouse = $10
Asus Black 20x DVD+/-RW/-RAM Writer = $20

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.
