    Aren't we always doing that when we build our rigs?

    When I built my machine, it's not the fastest, but I try to get the biggest bang for my bucks for the parts.

    $415.94 and you could drop the burner off and get a cheaper power supply and 512 RAM. If you read the thread I linked I got the price down to $384 or so. And those are prices from 2 months ago. Cheaper now I bet.
