With the bluetooth and wireless lan it will cost me $574.00. I already have an Intel T9300 cpu and a 250gb 7200rpm hard drive to put in it. I can get 4gb of ddr3 ram from newegg for $60. I would mainly be using it for internet, watching movies(I have a samsung 3D ready tv and this would power the software for that), playing some games like sims and such. Is the ATI HD 4650 a decent card? What do you think? Thanks!
