Methinks he's a bit off with his shipping estimates:

Looks like shipping to California is only $65 using UPS ground. That's $70 less than FredEx.

I think he included a monitor though, that would probably increase it quite a bit.

I am terribly sorry. I, for one, DO NOT WANT TO BUILD A COMPUTER!!!! I don't have the time. I don't have the patience. I will prefer to pay a high end company for building my computer (with a warranty) for $20-$50 more. Every time I look around, someone is recommending the creation of their own computer. Everyone does not want to sit their and do that. Especially if they are asking about buying a pre-made. Wew!!! That was a mouthful. I am just a lazy .

Well it usually is not 20-50$ more. You save a bunch building a computer with your selected parts. IBuyPower isn't bad though. You get what you ask for but the price is a lot higher than if you were to build it yourself

IBP......... my frends younger brother bought a decent gaming rib there

When he got it they called me over cos they couldnt get it to work

and it wasnt anything I thought it would be like

Poorly assemble........... I went to newegg and showd them how much the PC wouldve cost by parts TWICE as better and half the price.

Major rip off.
Convince your parents to let you build one just take em to new egg and compare prices
