other than not getting a monitor, this beats buying a $500 dell or compaq, no contest.

but do as you wish. I prefer customizing everything about my computer.
I can't stand those crappy cases brand computers give you, they look like crap.
brand computers are just too lacking in terms of upgradability, too, the company would prefer you buy a new computer, since money is the whole point to it.

so in the end, CUSTOM ALL THE WAY!

SRY to dubl post, but this man is right too. I mean 550$ and you don't have to go through the trouble of upgrading that compaq. 20$ says you find a bolt in there that you don't know how to unscrew because it is completely random. Oh yea and you are going to have a SLOOOWWW system because your windows is going to be infested with software. Good luck.

I dont know if you heard of this but windows has the feature its called Add or Remove Programs. Its weird you can actually remove all those programs compaq puts on their systems.

Its not all about clock speeds. My processor is a different core then yours, mines a san diego core which is what the FX series uses. Like yours has a 512kb cache mine has a 1mb cache

the only reason everybody i talk about on here says to get the 3700 is because of the cache..............Thats the only difference....the both have the same clock speed....the only thing is different cores and different cache sizes....but many of the people i talk to saw the 3500 is much more overclockable and reliable.....whats your opinion then...and which one should i get out of the ones i listed last time
