    Well I dont know about how good the deals are but the CPU and the Graphics card are good.

    The motherboard, however, has onboard video which you do NOT need. Look for another motherboard.

    Look for a motherboard with 400 MHz FSB and Nforce2 chipset.

    And if you want to stick with MSI:

    That's my friend Bruce Taylor (OKA hypoxicon) from neowin that made the second comment about the hightech 9600XT with HL2 voucher.

    He said he did not get the half life 2 voucher!

    My friend on Neowin was looking for that exact card HIS 9600 XT. That is the turbo version, and comes with BLUE LED&#39;s, faster memory (50 MHz faster), and ramsinks on the RAM. He finally ordered it, hoping for all of those features (HL2 voucher too).

    He got all the features EXCEPT no HL2 voucher.

    I was just saying it is funny because my friend also made a review at the ebuyer site. He is VERY satisfied with the card he says.

    You can get the processor and the motherboard that vb1234 suggested at http://www.overclockers.co.uk/ for cheaper. They don&#39;t have any chaintech graphics cards, but they do have a good selection of other brands.

    Yes, that&#39;s the MSI board. But it&#39;s only one choice for a motherboard with the Nforce2 chipset. There are many others.

    And for the CPU... The second one on that list
    AMD Athlon "Barton" XP2500+ 333FSB (Socket A) CPU - Retail (CP-040-AM)
    is a better choice. I has a cooler and a better warranty than the OEM one.
