We've gone through and updated all of the parts lists.  We changed the CPU, motherboard and RAM on the $1800 and up computers to the new Intel Core i7-3930K 3.2GHz LGA 2011 Six-Core CPU.  We also upgraded the video cards on the $2300 computer to the latest 2 chip model cards from Nvidia and AMD (ATI). 

 There were of course prices changes, mostly down with the exception of  hard drives.  In the past 2 weeks prices for hard drives have almost doubled.  This is being blamed on the flooding in Thailand where a lot of hard drives are manufactured.    To keep the cost of each parts list down we have downgraded the hard drives on the $1200 and up computers to 1TB drives. 

You can find the main parts lists page here.
