They must be doing something right. Last I heard they were selling about $18,000,000 worth of computers per day. If nothing else you gotta admire a company that can sell that many computers without even using the retails stores like Best Buy, etc.

not true. Certain dells are actually quite good. I own a Dell 400sc and they are actually quite decent for the price.

i got a Pentium 4 3.2, CD RW, 512 Megs of Ram, and other little necessities for 459 USD.
that is not bad at all. and the power supply that the 400sc comes with is top notch quality. They list it as 250 watt, but it really is more like 350+ or 400watt.

The tower is whisper quiet, and u can hear a pin drop in the room.

well back to topic.

if the parts that u have are not a generic brand, i' would consider to pay around 800 US dollars. How is the cooling in that thing.

Amen. I have a lot of Dell's that I maintain ranging from old Pentium II's up to 3 Ghz P4's and have had only a few minor problems with them (mainly Western Digital hard drives) that were quickly swapped out by Dell. Even the old PII's are still going strong.
