that card is worth $350
the memory is worth about $100
the cpu is worth about $175
the motherboard is probably worth about ~$50
xp home edition about $90
the two harddrives about $140
sound blaster audigy about $90
Optical about $100
thats a total of: $1095 without the case and psu (from dell about $30 total probably) and other software.
I would say its a pretty good deal if the condition is new or almost like new.
Entropius: I don't think he was looking for a debate on amd vs intel and which ones better...but thanks for the opinion though.
Fishnet: What gave you the idea that your 6600gt is even in the same league as the x850 xt pe??
I didn't, I should have made it more clear that I felt that my processor might be less powerful and that my video card is certainly less powerful.
your processor is better in games than the p4 at 3.0 ghz, but it doesnt make as much difference as the gfx card. The x850xt pe is a highend card, the 6600gt is a midrange card. He will get better fps....but of course he pays more for it.
