I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section.

How does this build look? I would want it with Vista 64 bit and rush shipping.

Comments? :bounce:

it is really really really hard to mess up and if you do have any problem you'll have the entire tom's hardware forum to help you
 
Two 9500 GTs ? WTF!!?? A single Radeon 4850 or Geforce 9800GTX/GTX+ is a better option. Well even a single 4830 or 9800GT would be better. Just build it yourself. If you can use a screwdriver you can build the computer. For $ 729 you can build something better, especially if you overclock it.

I agree with everyone on here. I think you should build your own PC, but if you really want to buy from this website.

You can get this AMD Phenom II computer.

You can also get this Intel Core 2 Duo computer.
http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/Gamer_Infinity_1000/

$780 - $65 = $715.

The CPU is equivalent to the E8400.
You get better ram, better cooling, better case, better PSU, a bigger faster hard drive, a much better video card, this setup is more upgradable.
My setup doesn't include OS, speaker or wifi card. Requires you to assemble the computer yourself and install the OS.

If you've never put a computer together yourself it can be intimidating, but its easy, you just need a day to yourself to take your time with it. Once you do it, you'll see how easy it and probably never consider a pre-built. All you have to do if follow the instruction (in the motherboard and case manual) and it just like putting together a puzzle, piece by piece it will all fall into place and take shape. Reading the instructions carefully and not getting ahead of yourself is the most important thing when building a computer for the first time.

Wifi cards are wireless network cards, for connecting to the internet if you have a wireless router. the 6pin adapters are in case you need them for your videocards if you crossfire down the road and your PSU or GPU doesn't come with a 6pin adapter.

Most parts come with instructions on how to install these days. Go for it, you'll be suprised how easy it is, plus you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you built your own rig.
