To me, it doesnt seem that great. I'm sure if you wait at least till the beginning of next year looking for good deals or dropping prices you can get the above for around a grand or even less. Oh and if you want to resell, you should get an ingram micro account or something and buy all the hardware from staples, pricematch, use coupons, and you'll get it. I'm not sure if you need the ingram micro account. Just search for "gonna" (trust me on that) at www.fatwallet.com/forums in the hot deals section. theres a huge discussion on it.

That's not a great deal. And as suggested you may want to wait until the NV30 and nForce2 mature a little to get a new top-end machine.

If you're looking to get a new machine I can help you configure one. Just PM me with what your budget is and I can help you get the most for your money.

I would definatly suggest building the computer yourself, getting as much help from these forums as you can.

When you search for the best price on each part you can make a great computer for so much less than any retail seller.
