Great Barebones deal from Tiger Direct for someone looking to build their own computer.

For only 349+tax+SH

Take today's exclusive barebone deal. It's built around the powerful Intel 840 3.2GHz Dual Core CPU. The CPU alone is worth 300 bucks. (Reminder: The entire Barebone Kit is just $349.99 after mail in rebates.)

Then, we included the MSI PM8PM-V Socket 775 Motherboard that was designed to handle the awesome Intel Dual Core performance. A $60 value!

Plus, it also includes 512MB of high speed DDR memory ($60 value), a huge Seagate 250GB internal hard drive ($85 value), and a high speed (16x) DVD Burner ($50 value). Add up all the components including the case, power supply and fan and this barebone is worth $605.

That's a great deal!

I would upgrade the motherboard though, if they allowed it, and buy more ram.
