All items are compatible...............have you tried looking at deals at http://www.tigerdirect.com

You may find some other barebone systems for decent price................

Sparta,

What type of use do you wish out of system? Email, surfing, video editing, photography, gaming.

Gameplay, graphics stuff, etc....................this is important consideration? Are any games newer more current games?


Here is a link to some other similiar combos from tigerdirect to check through: http://www.tigerdire...p;searchbtn.y=8

Very low cost barebone kit with built in video and ability to add video card plus this is better cpu then the back to school one:

I was thinking about playing some 3D games and basic programs.

I looked at the link that you sent me and I'm very interested in this computer http://www.tigerdire...e...8&CatId=332

If I add a Hard Drive for $50 and a DVD drive for $35 I get a total price of $254.99 without a graphics card which I desperately need...

So cost wise my original build was cheaper by about $10? What do you guys think would be the better build cost wise? 1st or 2nd? also, would the integrated graphics card in my first build, (my first post) have enough power to handle some simple 3D games? Thanks for all your time, I hope you can answer my questions! :)

Sparta,

Thats a decent system if you want to keep your costs down...sometimes saving 10 dollars when doing a build is not the smart thing to do. This system for the price is a decent setup for what you are looking for. I would add in a video card if you want to do 3d gaming. YOu can always add on other items in future. The cpu is much better in the one from tiger then the orginal one you were looking at. I would try to get as much video card as you can for your buck also. Also if you are looking for OS buy an OEM copy when you buy your hardware you will save lots of money that way.

The video card could wait if you want to save up for something. The onboard video will play some games as long as they are not too intensive if you wish to purchase video card at later time.
