Those in-store combos are usually a decent jumping-off point for a new build, but they always toss in at least one sub-par component that nobody wants.

Just to give you an idea...I'm selling the 2nd Rig in my Sig to my daughter and son-in-law for $600, but I will be adding a 74GB Raptor Drive to it with W7 HP.....and another 4GB Mushkin RAM
