Default Build me a computer.

Hi all,
can someone who has enough knowledge of computer components and enough free time try to build me a decent computer from this site:

http://www.microbytes.com/computer/o...W50ZWw=&lang=1

My budget is around 2000$, preferably less.
Things I want:
-Intel Duo Core
-Good graphics card, able to run latest games relatively smoothly. (BF2142, Oblivion, etc)
-At least 2GB of ram
-At least 250gb storage
-Nice flat monitor, I don't really care about the size. 19" or more would be good.
-Decent sound system with good speakers.
-No extras.. I'll choose them later.


This is one of the companies I'm told about most here in Montreal, my other options would be MDG or DELL.

ty

i dnt understand that website i thought the price was a bit high half way through the build it was like $1845 and then you have basic system which u choose components and then u choose components again on the components section ????? not to mention i put everything on there to NONE so there shudnt be a price and it started at $500 and something ?? are you sure your not able to build or even buy the parts and pay your local technician $80 or something would work out alot cheaper

Wow, that seems like a good deal.. though I might want to increase the storage up from 80.
Is that a good video card? 8800 GTS 640M?

It is a good GPU. I didn't think of the Hard drive though. Well, all you'll need to do is to use that build and instead of the 80, get a 320.

That graphics card is way way over priced! For that price you can almost grab a 8800GTX at newegg. You should be looking right around $400 for a 8800gts 640mb edition. And yes its the 2nd best card on the market.

Seems decent, but is that available in Canada? The reason I'm trying Microbytes is because it's apparently the most reliable here.

that microbytes probably has the prices in canadian dollars. Newegg has USD. That it something to think about before saying the place is way too expensive.
And newegg doesn't ship to canada.
