frys might be the problem though, people have mixed results buying hardware from them as i understand it...more of their stuff is refurbished than they lead you to believe supposedly, but i don't really know

i bought basically everything for my computer online.



Frys has been a no go for me for a while. It's a waste dealing with them.

I would order it online but I desperately need a computer as quickly as possible. I'll try Fry's, bestbuy, CompUSA and wherever else I can get a good deal

I actually lucked out, and got a refurbished gateway (fx6800 01e) about 16 months ago. I paid between $600-$650, and have not had a problem with it EVER. Plays every game at high that I could ever ask it to, and it's quiet as a mouse. I literally just bought it for the Core i7 920...The parts alone would have cost me more. I recommend refurbished computers and T.V.'s (with warranties, of course) to everyone.

Intel Core i7 920
ATI Radeon HD 4850
3 GB DDR3 RAM (Uprgraded to a total of 7GB RAM)
750 GB Hard Drive
...And filler.

At the time, I was really set on getting a Blu Ray player, which this didn't come with, but not anymore. I have means of getting HD movies (720 and 1080P) quite easily, and at will.

Built my dad a beast PC couple weeks ago. The computer boots up in less than 25 seconds. Absolutely amazing, and all for under $950.

i7 870
8GB DDR3 1333 RAM
GT 9500 GFX card (Not for gaming, but for rendering huge graphics files)
ASUS Mobo with USB 3 and Sata 6
1TB HDD
