My little side business

Well over the past couple months ive been wheelin and dealing and trying to get a little side business started. Been joking with my head sales man (RJ) that the name should be Custom Computer Creations and Parts so that way we can abbreviate it CCCP for ****s and giggles.

but anyways to the point of this thread. Got our first customer. Waiting on the rest of the check to go through. After my price mark up the total came to $1940.32. It more of a hobby, but for the guy im doing it for, my time is worth some money. Granted out of all that I am only making about 160 dollars. Charged 4% of the cost of the part then 6% of the total cost before my mark up. Not bad for the computer he is getting. Since through Dell it would cost out the ***. I am working on a quote for a buddy of mine, he will get it at cost though. So one customer and a possible second so far.

I made the first order of parts today since my bank is wierd on large personal checks and only allows so much through at a time. I only have (well had) 600 of the total check and i deposited it yesterday. the rest will go through next week.

thought i would post up the specs of the computer. It is a really nice. RAM is over the top, but that is what the customer wanted so I said fine, few more cents for me.

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (2 gig CPU)
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum motherboard.
BFG Tech NVidia GeForce 7800GT vid card (PCI express x16)
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 4 pro sound card (7.1 surround on your computer?)
2 LG 16x DVD-RWs
Western Digital 7200rpm 250g hard drive
Mitsumi 3.5" floppy and multi card reader in one (not so sure about this but he is the guinee pig)
4 Gigs Corsair XMS DDR 400 (PC 3200) ram
Thermaltake Armor Series ATX Full tower. (Aluminum/Steel with 10 external5.25 drive bays 2 external 3.5 and 6 internal 3.5" 2 90mm and 2 120 mm fans)
Cooler Master 450w power supply
and a copy of Win XP Pro

hmm dont think i am forgeting anything..well just felt like sharing

Re: My little side business

I didn't say it was 10 GB of RAM... I said 10 GB of memory. I didn't say random access memory. Just like my laptop has an 80 GB hard drive... he's got 10. Calmanse on the BS flag.

I understood it. :dunno:

Although, generally speaking "memory" isn't used to refer to secondary storage.
