Case - STC-10 (BLK & SLR WINDOW TOWER W/ 300W PS) - Picture

Considering you can get all of that off of Newegg for about $550-$600....

Personally, if I was going to pay to have a computer built, I would have gotten a Dell.

Wherever you bought it from gave you a free one year warranty, which is nice except all of the parts already had atleast a one year warranty on them, so its nothing special.

Besides being slightly overpriced, it doesn't sound like a bad computer.

@echo off

REM -- actually I have to echo the above. I bought 6 Dells with a 17 inch monitor included for $570 each and all have a P4 1.2 Ghz (price includes monitor - Same amount of RAM.

Not to make you feel bad, but you paid more than you needed to.
