It's custom shop built. Mine in my room is built from newegg and i did notice the price difference..especially that the EXACT same graphics card is 100$ more. but i can't do anything price-wise. My brother doesen't trust me to go buy the parts and build myself. He went to the store, came back, threw me a list of the stuff they had and told me to figure it out. Also, He's going to be running windows XP, is all that going to be compatible?

Thanks,

No offense intended, but you didn't even ask about xp compatibility in your first post or I would have never taken my time to try and help you in the only area that I could think of at the time. And, as far as your brother throwing the list at you, then telling you to build it, with the parts HE hand-picked... well, HE certainly should have included an OS disk because he obviously knows best.

Ahh. none taken. Sorry about that. I wrote it up quick, when I'm on here more than 5 minutes, Vista hangs. He didn't tell me the parts though. The guy at the store gave him this 5 page list of all the parts they carry and told me to pick what he needs, and that's what I did.

tg1911: I tried to explain I can get these same parts at newegg/tiger direct/canada computers for almost half what he's paying but he doesen't want me opening it up at all :\ .

Thanks,
n0data

Thanks for all the help,
