Default Re: Is this a good computer??

Wow AR that is a great build too and it has the monitor, speakers, keyboard and mouse too. All the OP would need is the printer but she still is ~ 150 under her original budget which leaves room for a very nice printer and still save a few bucks.

I would definitely go with one of these rigs from Ibuypower over that original HP. I don't know why people buy comps from best buy/walmart etc. when this place obv blows them out of the water with price/performance if the customer doesnt want to build there own...

It's because they don't know any better. And if they do, they probably don't want the "bling" which also doesn't make any sense at all IMO.
