Hello, Sorry for listing this with out some details, I did buy all the the parts NEW over about a six month window, some of my parts are slightly different because I could not find them on this website so I picked the closest ones I could (quality and price). I watch my favorite websites and my local Fry's electronics store and when they blow out some good items I grab them. Most the really good deals requiring waiting for a rebate but I have not had any issues receiving them. I have built many PC's and I wanted to try and build a decent one for 2 Bills and I think that was acomplished nicely. Here is my itemized costs including any shipping and sales tax: MSI A55m and AMD A4-3300 combo deal from Fry's $65 (after $20 rebate) Gigabyte GZ-F1 Case New Egg $21 (after $20 rebate) MSI R5450 1gb Fry's $12 (after $20 rebate) Corsair Cmv4gx3m2a1333c9 4GB 2x2 Fry's $15 (after $15 rebate) Seagate Barracuda ES 750GB factory recertified $43 (New Egg ) LG gh24ns72 DVD/CD writer Fry's $14 Antec BP-350 PSU Amazon $24 Usb multi-card reader Bytec New Egg $ 7
The Keyboard, mouse and speaker combo was added for value, purchased the MKZ260 combo from Tiger Direct for $20 after rebate.
