Hey, how's it going? Word of warning: the guys around here act like drooling dogs whenever a girl joins the forums. Did you guys hear me? No drooling!

Anyway, I hope they're not too bad this time around. Welcome to the forums!

I know two girls that are Software Engineers and the third one is a Systems Engineer. I'm trying hard to get into those fields but apparently, I'm not qualified. Those women are doing easy stuff like training the staff how to build a complete PC systems, troubleshoot software problems, test new software, etc. Such easy feat and something I know that I can do, but I'm a just guy who lacks expereince. That is why I'm making up for it by getting my Bachelor's.

Anyways, I babbled long enough. Welcome to the forum. How's the PC build coming along?

Oh wow!!! Can't believe you did it. I know it's a steep price, but you got one hell of a computer system. Actually, $3500 is pretty good. Alienware or other private PC makers charge like $4000-$5000. What did your friends say about it? Did you order the parts already?

Well, show us the list so far. I'm sure you can rationalize somethings and maybe take out some components that you don't really need. You never know...

If you feel the price is too high, you can try this for replacements:

eVGA 256-P2-N376-AX Geforce 6800GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130215

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Toledo 1GHz FSB 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Dual Core Processor - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103546

MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 Ultra ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130484

CORSAIR XMS 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory - Retail
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145449

That should shave off $700+ off of original quote. You may get a dropoff in performance from the specs I gave you originally, but it's still quite a performer.

Do you really need new keyboards and mice? If you already have some, then just use those. That way you save money and you won't waste anything. Same with the Floppy. If you don't need it, don't get it.

EDIT>>> But it is a very nice system! I would gladly have it!
