Yeah, your ight. I just havee newegg set to display by rating... and I really didn't go through that much... I didn't want to spend too long on that.
But if you get a $70 mobo, you would have an OEM copy of XP HOME included, and since he doesn't need the monitor, THat gives him an extra $70 for optical drives/psu, which can be had for the $120 with some smart shopping. (assuming the rebate on the vid card is stil god when he buys)
buy yeah, I see what you mean.
