    Heh, that's pretty much what I've got, plus one IDE hard drive, and minus one core (plus the CPU's an Athlon64).

    Nice price.

    Pretty nice build and price for it. I only wish I could had the time to build something on my own. Instead I have to settle with prebuilt hardware, Boot and Nuke the HD, then reinstall my OS to my liking (or at least the one that works with my system at work). I will stop rambling on, but very nice setup and price.

    Aye. Never pay labour costs when you can do it yourself Especially since pre-built machines tend to come with Windows installed, which would be a waste of money.

    It doesn't take long... about an hour for a clutz like myself, but I have a friend who does it all the time, and whose record is half an hour.

    It took 45 minutes to build mine, then 3 hours to install all my software

    Ah, took me three days to install all my software Yay Gentoo! xD

    But I did just plug in my old hard drive and compile it whilst working on my old installation, so it wasn't too bad.

    Nice build tech. Sounds a lot like my new work computer. I had to order it though (tax free and all that) so I couldn't build it myself. But on the bright side I didn't have to pay for it either.

    I got the new Dell E521, with some upgrades of course... AMD 64 like Twey has, all SATA interior DVD rw drive, 48X DVD Rom, 13 in 1 media card slot, S-video PCI slot, 2 - 160G HDs, one empty (for Fedora) and the other for Windows.

    But I did get the free upgrade option for Vista, if I ever decide to go there.

    Mine was only 750(US) but again, no taxes.

    I want a new one for home though, this is my first ever 64 bit computer and I like it a lot!

    That's more expensive than mine.
