Umm.. why the **** are you buying a 720p TV? And more so, why the **** are you buying a Wii? my 28" computer monitor cost 350, what makes you think you can get a good 40" TV for under 500?


Also, buy a ******* sound card for $50 for the PC, then run a fiber optic cable to the receiver. I got my Onkyo tx-ds555 on craigslist for $75, an awesome deal. If you go new, expect a good receiver to cost around 500+.


Furthermore, Bose is overpriced bullshit. Ok some of their stuff is nice, but still overpriced. I run a pair of bookshelf B&W speakers with 6 inch woofers and it sounds great. Such speakers can be had for under 100 a pair.


Also, if you run a proper receiver, you can then get a nice pair of headphones. I have a pair of Beyerdyanmic DT770 pro's, cost me 200 but sound amazing, with GREAT bass output. Awesome for when you need to be quiet, but still want to rock out or game.


For the PC, to get the best price, build your own. Its fun, try it. Newegg.com is your friend.



So much god damn fail in the thread.


Imma go kill myself now.

My budget doesnt allow for a (subjective term) GOOD tv. It allows for a bugdet minded GOOD decision.

becouse you dont need to spend a pile of cash to get what you want, nor are we elitest snobs who think that spending $$ is the only measure of quality on stuff.
