Hello all, PCs are getting cheaper by the day. So my question is, how much did you pay for yours? Mine was pretty cheap, and it's still as top of the line as you'd expect these days. I have receipts from all this stuff, so these are definitely accurate: Athlon XP 2100+ - $83 ASUS A7V8x (KT400) - $115 512MB KingMAX 400MHz DDR - $140 Thermaltake Volcano 9 - $28 Gigabyte Maya (ATi Radeon 8500 Pro) - $100 21" NEC MultiSync P1150 - $150 (refurb.) SB Audigy MP3+ - $54 120GB Western Digital Special Edition (8MB cache) - $154 10GB Western Digital Caviar - free AOpen 4x DVD-ROM - free Lite-On 40x/12x/48x CD-RW - $55 Thermaltake XaserII 5000A - $130 350W Enermax Whisper PSU - $47 Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro - $39 Optical Logitech Rodent - $20 Joystick - $15 Nostromo n50 - $25 FDD - $9 $1164 total, with peripherals. I've bought all this stuff over time, and it's all added up...:dead: About half that came out of my own pocket. The old HDD and the old DVD drive were really expensive when my dad bought them - I dunno how much he spent though. He gave both to me after he upgraded. This is without speakers. Speakers were: 500W Kenwood receiver - $150 KLH center speaker - $55 KLH front speakers - $36 Pioneer floorstanders - free $241 total System w/ speakers - $1405 Man that's alot.
