BUT THE PROBLEM IS, WHEN I GO ON THOSE SITES AND MAKE THE SAME SYSTEM. IT COSTS A WHOLE LOT MORE!

AND BY THE WAY. HAS ANYONE EVEN LOOKED AT MYSTERYBYTE.COM?

Ordering most or all from infonec will save you on shipping its usually a fairly flat rate with most comp stores. That mysterybte im sure you like being close an all but if they arent giving you the best price DONT USE THEM unless a builder can offer A. a better price or B. something special dont use them do it yourself it literaly can take two hours from boxes arriving to playing Counterstrike its not hard at all.

Wattage means diddly its Quality that counts, Antec, Enermax, Ultra and Tagan are who i would reccomend you look at others are good but you will need to research them first with thsoe companies its pretty much guaranteed to be a winner.

That reseller rating means squat to me 16 reviews in less than 6 months and nothing prior and no actual data there for me to read, you can have the best shop in the world i still wont buy from it if its expensive ive got 3 or 4 local computer shops and they are great guys in there are great to talk to about computers but i would never buy anything from them because there prices are nowhere close to what i can buy and put together myself its not there fault its the nature of their business.

You dont look at shops you look at prices if you cant get that go to your browser help page find hwo to block images and block all the logos for the computer sites so all you see is prices, prices are the holy grail these arent hand produced items they are mass produced electronics they are going to be the same parts with the same warranties no matter where you buy them so think about the price and thats what you base decisions upon. Also no body will check Mysterybyte because youve allready done it.

the msi k9n neo4-f is fine. the best brands for PSUs are Antec, OCZ, Enermax, Fortron group, Hiper, Tagan (but i believe this is only UK, not sure), but ultra hasnt had such a great rep so i wouldnt go with them. and also..PC Power & Cooling.

the cooler master centurion is by far better than any aspire. AND its cheaper.

it is only $100 cheaper, but its way better quality. for one thing the NEC 3550A is better than LG, the PSu for sure is garbae, but antec is way better. the case is better than the aspire.

Although I have an Aspire I agree with the case thing Techie is talking about. Coolermaster is great at making sleek looking cases that are quiet and keep the inards cool.
