Posted: 08:36PM

NVIDIA has come up with an idea for those who feel like they could build their own computer if only they knew where to start. The company has gathered together all the necessary parts to build an Intel LGA775 system. The kit includes:

  • MSI G31TM-P21 Motherboard
  • Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 Processor
  • GlacialTech Igloo 5058 Socket775 95W CPU Cooler
  • Corsair Value Select (2GB) 2048MB PC5400 DDR2 Desktop Memory
  • XFX GeForce 9800 GT 512MB PCIe w/Dual Link DVI Video Card
  • LG GH22NS40 22X SATA SecurDisc DVD RW Internal Drive
  • Seagate ST9250410AS Momentus 7200.4 Hard Drive
  • Microsoft Comfort Curve Keyboard 2000
  • Microsoft Basic USB Optical Mouse
  • Cooler Master NV-334-KWN1-GP Elite 334 Nvidia Case
  • Ultra LS500 Lifetime Series 500W Power Supply

Also included is an easy-to-follow manual to guide the customer through the entire installation process from start to finish and also provides them a useful primer on PC technology in general. So for someone looking to get their feet wet in the PC building game, this is a good way to get started. NVIDIA has taken care of the intimidating parts selection process and all the needed hardware is included. The kits are being marketed through TigerDirect for $499.99.

It looks like a good deal for the performance, but it doesn't look very attractive(to me at least)

Seems nice for a beginner, to introduce him to the hobby and actually save him some money. But you can build a much nicer system for $500.

I think it's strange that they have chosen to include a 2.5" HDD. Still going to need to add an OS to that list as well.

Definitely an odd decision, though I suppose power consumption was part of the decision. This is definitely a pretty low-end system though in today's standards. An E5300, generation old video card and only 2GB of slow RAM? As for the case, I think it actually looks decent except for the inexcusable rivets/screws on the side panel surrounding the window. That window would look pretty cool if is wasn't surrounded by that crap.
