IS THE MX VARIETY AND I HEAR IT IS ABOUT ON THE SAME SPEED AS THE GEFORCE3 TI200, THOUGH I COULD BE MISTAKEN.

As for 1200 bucks, are you getting that CPU gold plated? Titanium case? What gives? I think someone is bending you over and reaming you.

if this is a complete system go for a pentium4 2.2 or 2.0, 512MB RAM, 80 Gig HDD, DVD + CDRW drive, Floppy, Firewire, GeForce4 Ti 4400, ALuminium case etc... I mean hell, you better really comparison shop. I think I could get the above system for around 1200-1300 dollars easily.

GRAND TOTAL without shipping,

with 2.2 northwood $1276

if you went with the 2.0 ghz CHIP

Grand total would be 1104.00

Just something to think about. By the way the prices come from Pricewatch.com

Consider that before they give it to you in the anus on your deal.

those prices for the CPU are OEM. You do not want a OEM on any CPU. You can play your luck with other hardware but CPU is a big no no.

-XPerties

BTW. OEM are also know to be called white boxes

Ok bump the price up about 100-160 bucks for retail. I have never personally had any problems with OEM, though I know they make retail a bit better based on the fact that is boxed in a nice new wrapper and is aimed at the PC builder/upgrader who demands more, but I think as long as it comes with a warranty, and you want to minimize the cost, go for it.

OEM warrentys are usually 30 days to 90. Sometimes you might get a year if you buy a special heatsink.

Retail comes with 3 years and I believe you can get a additional 4 years from the place you buy it as a extended, but be careful with those extended.

-XPerties

BTW...OEM usually dont come with heatsink and if it does its a non-regulated INTEL un-certified heatsink which is another no no
