Firingsquad needs thanks for this guide. It shows how this $1,000 PC stacks up against a High end Super FX-57, 7800GTX setup. Benchmarks. Anyway, wait til you see what they threw in there for $1000. I couldnt believe it possible but they did it.

No keyboard...no mouse and no monitor. O_o

Must be nice having that gfx card and pretending what it would be like playing a game. LOL

Hmm I dont understand the need for a 7800, heck a 6800 would do just as fine.

My article on how to build a cheaper machine:
CPU: Athlon 64 3200 ~190
Mobo: Neo 4-F ~85
Ram- 1GB Val Select ~87, cheaper on ZZF
Grfx 6800 by evga around $195
Case ~$50, Epower Puma II $50
Hard drive: Hitachi Sata II drives, ranging from $50 to 123
OS: XP Academic 80
CDRW/DVDRW- Newegg has them all the time for $40
Keyboard for $10
Mouse for $10
Headset for $20

Includes OS as well heh.

yeah, I was working on one with a 6800GT on a DFI Infinity SLI board, but I figured too many have already jumped on the 78xx bandwagon....although if I were to go with a single gpu setup, I'd go with what I know, and that's the X800XL.

Ah....but if you already have those other components listed, then its the perfect guide for upgrading your base unit.
