And yeah thats pretty much it. Got a free 17'' Flat panel too.
And from new egg, i orderd the 5.1, 70 watt speakers, i forget the models of them tho..
Thats pretty good being a dell, i was nearly going to go for a dell since here in aust they have been advising dell like mad on the adds and morning shows etc..But changed my mind.
I cant remember the specs and what deals tho, i'll take more note again next time.

You guys really don't believe me, huh?

Alright... This is what I bought from Newegg.com


A Powmax black ATX Case including 400 watt PSU (holiday special) $20.00

80 Gig 8mb cache Barracuda Seagate Harddrive $55.00

AMD Sempron 2200+ $67.00

512 Megs 333mhz Offbrand ram $50.00

ASrock MATX Motherboard with 5.1 surround sound integrated sound
and integrated 10/100 LAN and integrated graphics - $40.00

Liteon DVD ROM 16x - $40.00

Liteon CD-Burner 52x - $25.00

Blue Keyboard/Mouse set - $12.00

So far -- 309.00


5.1 Surround Sound speakers - $55.00

Sony IDE Floppy Disk drive - $9.00

Zalman CNPS2500 (I believe) %100 Copper Flower Heatsink with 92MM fan - $21.00

Blue UV Reactive Dragon Fan Plate - $9.00


So far -- $403.00

Phillips 107E66 17 inch black Monitor - $117.00


That totals to $520.00

Lets add shipping... That would be about 30 bucks worth of shipping soo....
$550.00

That's a complete system... And I bought that a year ago when the Semprons first came out... If I were to build another budget PC this year, I could definately get a better system for a 100 bucks more than I paid last year.

Not bad...although the price to performance ratio isn't that much of a difference, so either way, it wouldn't really matter if Arrizx went with Dell or made your computer.
