... oem and retail? As a newbie pc builder, I fancy having a go at building a base unit. The spec I'm looking at is P4 2.4 on a Gigabyte 8SQ800 board, 9500 Pro, 512 MB of PC400, 80Gb HDD, DVD player, XP Pro, 5.1 speakers. I reckon I can get the lot for less than £700, but I believe that's based on so-called retail prices (apart from XP oem). Don't know if that's a good price or not, but maybe it can be reduced somewhat by using oem products... whatever they are? Help would be appreciated by anyone please!
