Shopping for a New Computer? Check Out the Powerhouse We Created for Cheap.

With school and college starting up, I bet some of you want, or have been asked for a new computer. First suggestion, get a desktop computer, not a laptop or a notebook. This is because desktops cost a third of the price for twice the power. And when it comes to power, we know just what you would want. In this article we build a super computer that can handle any game, application, or rendering program... all for under $1600.00.

To build the perfect computer, we will discuss every item that will be installed for the listed low price. So, for those of you considering a Dell or Gateway, check out the deal we have in store.


The Computer Specs


The following is every electronic item needed to have your computer running properly [and quickly].
Processor INTEL PENTIUM 4 PROCESSOR 3.2GHZ/800fsb 775-pin 1MB Cache
Motherboard ASUS P4C800 DELUXE
Memory CORSAIR 1024 MB PC 3200 DDR 400MHz CAS3
Hard Drive SEAGATE 80GB SERIAL ATA-150 8MB BUFFER 7200 RPM
Disk Drive ANY 1.44" FLOPPY
DVD-Rom LITE-ON 16X DVD-ROM
DVD-RW LITE-ON 832S 8X DVD-RW +/- Double LAYER
Sound Card CL SOUND BLASTER LIVE 5.1
Ethernet / Lan 3COM Gigabit Lan PCI Controller supporting 10/100/1000 BASE-T Ethernet [BUILT IN]
Video Card ATI RADEON 9800XT 256MB DVI 8X AGP
Case X-PIDER SILVER ALUMINUM FULL TOWER CASE W/ 420W POWER SUPPLY
Keyboard LOGITECH KEYBOARD ACCESS BLACK
Mouse LOGITECH MX310 OPTICAL MOUSE
Speakers ALTEC LANSING ATP3W 2.1 SLIM SPEAKERS AND SUBWOOFER SYSTEM
Operating System WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL

After figuring tax, the total for this system came to: ~ $1598.00 [number can vary depending on sale tax, a sales tax of 8% was used].



One Smoking CPU


Alright, for just under $1600.00 [including tax] you can have one beast of a computer that can handle all the upcoming games and applications. Also, if you already have speakers, keyboard, and mouse, you could remove another $100.00 from the total price.

We also suggest the purchase of the Viewsonic G90FB 19" CRT MONITOR. It may not be flat panel [it is flat screen], but it offers some of the more impressive displays when compared to other CRT monitors. Or, of course, you could just blow a wad of money on an XBRITE flat panel.
