Good PC Deal?


Well I was wondering if I could get a deal any better then this. My brother is buying a new computer and this is the best deal that we could find. He isn't building on his own simply because he doesn't want to deal with it and doesn't know how.

No OS needed, we have a spare legal copy of XP Pro.

If the answer is no, could you please show me a better deal? Keep in mind there is no way he'd be willing to spend nearly anything more then this, and if possible cheaper is better.

Drop the sli option, and go with a single card of x800xl or higher or the 6800gt or higher, there is no point on getting two midrange cards when one high end will do the trick with less power and the same price.
