Oh give me a break. They didn't get ripped off hard at all. They snagged how many items? Probably locally? That's not that much of an overhead to pay for local shopping. If that was all online, even then its not too bad just not as low as a price hunter could manage.

Guys give the kid some slack. Anyways TC, just give a budget for the cpu,gpu, and motherboard and people here will give you suggestions on what to buy. Give us a figure to work with. You're too excited about your xmas presents. Well I can imagine myself younger and I would be too.

AOC E2752Vh LED 68.6cm (27 inch) - $199.99 (Good deal for a monitor that size but AOC is a crappier brand)
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/aoc-27-widescreen-flat-panel-led-hd-monitor/4725415.p?id=1218516242338&skuId=4725415

EVGA 600W Bronze Power Supply - $60 (Though you could go cheaper if you are not doing dual-GPUs)
http://us.ncix.com/products/?usaffiliateid=1000031504&sku=89067&vpn=100-B1-0600-KR&manufacture=eVGA

Wi Fi USB Adapter Belkin - $32 (You could get a TP-Llink one that is just as good for cheaper. Also, for a desktop I would go PCIe/PCI)
http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-Wireless-Adapter-Latest-Generation/dp/B004N625BO

Seagate Desktop Hard Drive 1TB/TO SATA - $61 (Though you can find 2TB drives for not much more)
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005T3GRNW/?tag=pcpapi-20

Windows 8.1 - $95 (Though personally I would go 7)
http://www.outletpc.com/xk2782-microsoft-windows-8-1-64-bit-operating-system-oem.html

4GB Memory Module Hyper blu - $43 (Though I would get 4GBx2 for not that much more)
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004JO10RU/?tag=pcpapi-20

G100s Logitech Optical Gaming mouse - $25 (Best Buy has the G400s on sale for $40)
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BCEK2LK/?tag=pcpapi-20

Total is $516.

You might think paying an extra $200 just to get stuff locally is fine but I sure as hell don't. That is literally the price of a good GPU.

Now you just need to pick motherboard and processor. Note, the new Haswell processors are socket 1150, not 1155, bloody confusing numbers.

I hope you got them price matched.
