Each configuration excludes
monitor/keyboard/speakers as these choices are more personal, so calculate a total of $300-$600 (€400-€600) on top of the price of the systems listed below for a complete system configuration.
The prices below in dollar come from www.newegg.com
while the prices in € are from www.mpl.be
If I could not find a certain product I searched through Froogle
and took the average price.
So here are our different systems:Budget Office Machine: $500-€600
Budget Gaming Machine: $900-€1000
Multimedia Gaming Machine: $1500- €1600
Ultimate, yet not overly expensive, Gaming Machine: $2500-€2800
