Shame on Dell for taking advantage of the military.


#3

I’m military at least on the paper and still serve! :slight_smile: But I want a Dell PC based on 820, not 630 or 640.


#4

Does that include a monitor? Seems like a rather terrible deal to me considering the prices you can build computers at these days and you could get a lot more than that most likely. I’d build a comparable to show you from newegg but don’t have time right now. Have to get to work, later all.


#5

@braxas how do you do that on newegg?


#6

I wouldn’t say it’s a bad deal. I priced some parts from Newegg and it came out to about $1400. The case I picked is better than the one Dell uses, but you need a good 400W power supply.
