My System Specs


I'd have to do more research into if thats a good deal or not. Are you buying the parts and getting someone to put it together? Or are you buying a pre-made system with those parts in it?

As for the Video Card, that will work just fine with the Setup.

That isn't unreasonable, especially if someone is taking care of the assembly. If you got all the parts yourself, you could probably shave a few bucks off of that, but not too many. I assume you already have a hard disk?
