Walmarts 200 USD Desktop? Well Here is my 150 USD one :)

The power of Newegg! I just did some searching and its 150 USD total but with taxes and shipping its under 190USD. But then again buying it on Walmart would be more then 200 anyways. You can add the a cheap graphics card but thats more then 200 with taxes and shipping :(. So adding a LCD monitor on top of that would be another 150 USD. Although it doesn’t include a keyboard and mouse I’m, sure you can still add ones very cheaply.

Note: Its not a via C7 D but hey its still use-able!

What about cables?

The power supply comes with its cables, the mother board comes with its cables… what cables do you mean? The cables to plug in your computer into the wall and connect the hard drive/dvd drive as well as the power supply is all there.

But… But…

OH!!!

What about the cable to the Magic Smoke container?

I’ve never even heard of that processor.

… that’s all well and good, but how much would you charge to assemble it? $50?

why not just assemble it yourself? that’s how I built my computer, I bought the parts thru newegg and then put it together myself.

Um yes.
That’s how I built mine too.
That wasn’t my point.
My point was, for $150 you may be able to build the same PC that Walmart sells for $200, but Walmart has to pay people to assemble them.

They have to make a profit. The hardware Wal-mart used is probably only worth about $90 direct from the factory. The market price doesn’t apply to them. They are the market.

Well I am selling my old computer for 350, to get a newer one. HDTV out, AMD 64, PCIE 16x & LCD was my goal and I managed to get the pricing for $351.24. I can later add more ram, AMD x2 (2 processors) and yeah :slight_smile: better then a crippled celeron.
