New Computer: Update [2]

New Computer: Update
:: Tue, Oct 25, 2011

Apparently FedEx damaged my computer during shipment and sent it back to Dell. They've since run out of supply in their refurbished department. So I gave up on Dell and decided to build a computer from CyberPowerPC. It was $810 after $75 shipping.

Processor AMD FX-4100 3.60 GHz Quad-Core AM3+ CPU 4MB L2 Cache & Turbo Core Technology
Hard Disk Drive 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM
Memory 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz
Motherboard [CrossFireX] GigaByte GA-970A-D3 AMD 970 Socket AM3+ ATX Mainboard w/ On/Off Charge, 7.1 Audio, GbLAN, USB3.0, SATA-III RAID, 2 Gen2 PCIe X16, 3 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI
WiFi Asus USB-N13 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 300Mbps Wireless USB Adapter
Media Bay 24X Double Layer Dual Format DVD+-R/+-RW + CD-R/RW Drive
Video NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 1GB 16X PCIe
Power 600 Watts - XtremeGear Power Supply - SLI/CrossFireX Ready
OS Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Operating System DVD
Warranty 3 Year

This ended up as a better deal than the Dell so it all worked out in the end. Should have it shipped on Nov. 8th. In the meantime I'm shopping for a new mouse, 24" flatscreen monitor, and new office chair because my current one is uncomfortable.

Decided I'm going to keep my current laptop. It's more than I need for something that won't be used for gaming but I don't think I'll get too much for it on ebay. Figured it's nice not always being confined to my office when doing work.

Surprised you went with the AMD chip.  I thought it was slower than the Intel i7.

I went for economy on the CPU. For an equivalent i7 I'd have to sacrifice video card power and get a slower processor speed.
