    $AU1699



    Considering what this has got, i'm not sure if you would save anything doing it yourself..


    Anybody have any idea what the motherboard is?

    The video card appers to be some hybrid 9800pro - 9800xt, this review sounds great

    Trust me, you will not find any card offering this sort of performance/cost ratio on the market right now. We highly recommend MSI RX9800PRO-TD128 128MB to anyone who is seeking great performance without having to deal with the devil.

    looks ok. pretty cheap if u ask me. now, aldi usually has a rep for low qual stuff at low prices. for that much, i'd recommend u build 1 urself

    The component spec looks pretty reasonable, but the case doesn't look to have much going for it. I don't see any mention of a monitor or speakers though.

    I suppose the question you need to ask is how much support are you going to get from Aldi if it breaks down. They are not well known as suppliers of pc equipment, but that said they may simply farm out support to a third party company.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Yeah i did some further inquires and it has 2 spare pci slots but both are blocked, one by the video card and the other by cables.

    i have no idea how much a aus $ is worth, and im really to lazy to look it up, but if you decide to do it, make sure you check @ the store if everything is in there....... Aldi comps have the habbit of missing stuff

    (oh, and here in holland, Aldi comps are cheap, but you're still better off putting one together urself.......)

    Looks cramped to me not good airflow and could have heat issues. I would say build your own or find a better system if you have the money go here.
