    I would have to say you could easily build one for that price, and probably have more features. But if you're not comfortable with building a system, you may want to make sure something like that will perform with your needs. I am assuming that since you are using an FX5200 you don't play much for newer games, or if you do, they are at lower/lowest settings.

    What are your plans with this PC?

    I recommend you do more research on the components in that PC and see if they're what you want and are willing to pay for, especially when you can save some cash and do it yourself. :toast:

    and the FX5200 was only put in like 3 days ago because my mobo has onboard graphics.

    :wtf:P4 3.2GHz DUAL CORE PROCESSOR :laugh:

    CPU
    INTEL PENTIUM D DUAL CORE 3.2GHz PROCESSOR 935

    this guy doesnt know what hes doing cuz why whould you put P4 if there not a dual core and its "really" a PD

    I say build one would get more bang 4 the buck

    15yrs you should be able to, its not rocket science just need to follow the steps

    i checked out the website and their prices look pretty good. The only problem about buying the parts and building it is that i dont know if they would all be compatible or not. If someone could give me a list of parts to use to build the system that are all compatible and under $750 from:

    http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/PARTS.pdf

    (all the parts have to be available at the Auburn store)

    thanks.

    And by the way, that guy on eBay is a moron.
    Yet he can't differentiate a Pentium 4 from a Pentium D. Sigh.

    Be sure to get a good psu! If you want to save more money go for a x1950pro.
