Didn't include Case, Mouse, Keyboard, or speakers. The Pentium will do just fine but you'll need to upgrade it in a year or two if you really want to make it last.

NOTE: The GPU price is actually $20 cheaper because it isn't adding the current promo from Newegg for 8% off, which brings it down to $200 after MIR. Not to mention you do get the Gold bundle with it.

Total = $700 before MIR, $646 after.

I don't understand why people spend less than $2k on a computer. I guess for most of my life computers cost that much, so people paid that much. These days people have $300 laptops, they don't prioritize their computing experience. The extra money makes all the difference.

Did I say that, or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me??

Because for most people computers are screens/keyboards that allow them to access their e-mail/Facebook/run Office and Quicken, and for those things a $2K computer would be way overkill. Also, why do some people live in trailer homes and yet have two nice trucks out in front? The answer: people prioritize their purchases differently/have different hobbies and interests.
