    If you're in no hurry to get a new computer you might benefit by waiting and
    checking for one or two day deals that Dell sometimes runs (usually near the
    end of one of their accounting periods which is Jan, Apr, Jul, Oct). For
    example I got almost the same Dimension 4600 setup as you but:

    512 MB RAM
    80G hard drive
    CDR and CDRW drives
    Soundblaster Live sound card
    Nvidia 128 MB video card
    Sonic Now DVD/CD writing software
    free shipping
    NO MONITOR

    for $579, after $200 rebate. This was back in the last week of January.

    Keep in mind that the Dell on Ebay does not come with a warranty.

    Are you 100% sure on that.... I looked into it and even read from dell's
    website that it is covered.....

    http://forums.us.dell.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=cc_faq&message.id=234

    Heres a line from a seller
    Warranty:One Year Next Business Day On-site service provided by Dell Tech
    Support

    "System comes with 1-year Next Business day on-site service and limited
    warranty good until early April 2005."

    I stand corrected. I was not aware Dell direct marketed through Ebay.

  6. Just because a seller prints it, doesn't mean it's accurate.

    Dell technically doesn't. They have a third-party company that does it for
    them. Still, though, it is Dell's warranty.
