Hmm what you mean by quote. You want someone to build a system like this for you?

Also the 9800se is a real peicer go with the 9600 XT instead.

Hmm you would have to ask ComputaFreek He will probably know.


Uh search these forums for some of my posts. I have recommend parts prices and places to buy them.

I dont feel like finding all this stuff again at this time.

Use http://www.pricewatch.com for price searches

Also http://www.zipzoomfly.com and http://www.newegg.com are good places as well.

Its going to cost him more than 40 bucks. I took the specs of a top of the line system that was selling for around $3000 or so and I assembled a price list that was 1000 dollars less. That means they were charging more than 1000 bucks to build the thing.

I found that I could get all the prices for $1000 less. That means they were charging 1000 to build the system.

i guess you all are not getting it

i can buy the parts but i dont want to. I want a quote to see what a pc builder would charge to compare because all i know is what i want i do not really know much about putting it together. and to the guy who said buy the parts and bring it to a shop, it would be easier just to let the pc builder do it.
