There's going to be an offer at a local store of a fully built PC. However at some points it kind of ****s. For example the graphics card isn't really that fantastic. Now I've kind of decided to either buy the one at the store, OR build my own. I have some parts I can take from this PC I use right now which are still more then usable. I have my setup all planned out if I want to go ahead with building my own, but that costs around 100 euros more then the prebuilt one at the shop.

To make a long story short, which one would YOU say I should go for.

Local shop offer -

Can you buy from Newegg ?
They have a killer bundled deal on fx-55 and 320 seagate HD for $200usd
and a 7900 gto that kicks butt for $250usd

with dx10 coming out real soon the dx9 card prices should be falling fast
also the fx55 is darn fast for a single core - games should be coming out that actually utilize dual core , but have yet to see one. Besides that socket 939 is dead - i keep at that in mind if you are looking to ever upgrade in near future.

No chance you can have the graphicscard replaced by a better model?
And I would get a soundcard with that system (realtec AC'97 is onboard, which obviously isn't as good as a seperate card with it's own processor!)

If you mean of that prebuilt one at the store, no that is as it is, no chance of changing anything. If you mean the self-built one: what kind of even better model were you thinking of then :S I might be able to get the soundcard from this PC I'm using atm into the new one.

No I meant the pre-built one.

B.t.w. check out www.informatiek.nl , they are very very cheap, deliver at your door and you can pay on delivery (dunno if that's possible with a complete system though)
En het duurde ff voor ik in de gaten had dat je uit NL kwam :D
Ooit wat software en 2 videokaarten gekocht bij die lui. 3 dagen na bestellen bezorgd.
