    - 300watt bestec psu (fried after a month)
    - 15 inch LCD emachine monitor (put face 1 inch see tiny lines across screen)
    - mouse+keyboard
    - basic 2 piece speaker
    - windows xp home

    for 480.00 usd grand total. good or bad deal? (for a pre-build)


    deal 2:
    bought refurbish sapphire X850 XT pci-express back in november 2006. sealed original box set, everything included, smell so fresh and so clean, looks like never been used. for 111.111 usd grand total. is it a good deal for the time I bought it? nov 2006? I mostly play mmos.

    Looks like a pretty bad deal to me considering the crap quality of the Emachines. I bought a Dell E510 in November 2006 with a 7600GT, 1 GB of ram, and 250Gigs for about the same amount of money.
