well....lets put that assumption to the test shall we jimbo


here is a gaming rig i googled from one of the largest UK ''E-tailors''

-well....jpg


now lets match the spec of this tower ourselves, using the same E-tailor for the separate components....

i7 920.......225

x58 board......150

6gb Tri channel DDR3.......77

GTX260.....120

Antec 900 gaming case........82

2x 500gb HDD's........84

DVDRW.......16

KEYBOARD & MOUSE.....73 (personally i'd never spend that amount on this product)


total......827

retail.....1091

as you can see im able to save myself quite a bit by building this rig myself even more could be saved by loosing that ''mouse & keyboard'', all components also have 1 year RTB on them....(which is the same as the actual warranty you get from the retail tower)...

building it yourself is the logical option.....
