  1. Hey,

    I'm just curious, I'm getting a new computer and I'm wondering if this would be a good choice to get:

    The one I'm looking at is the M5 Gladiator Pro.

    If I would get it, I would upgrade to the following:

    Logitech X-230 32 watts RMS 2.1 Black Speaker System
    AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Processor 2.4GHz 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2
    Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s
    RAID 0 Striped for SATA Hard Drives
    D-Link 108Mbps 2.4GHz Wireless PCI Adapter
    Microsoft Curve 2000 B2L-00002 Black USB Wired Ergonomics Keyboard
    Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000

    If anyone has any comments on if this would be a good buy or not, then please reply back.

    Thanks,
    KingEvan

    Looks pretty decent. You didn't mention anything about video card or memory. If you plan on running Vista you may want to consider 2GB of memory and the 7900GS should be better than the 7600GT (more bandwidth) for only $39 more.

    Thanks for the reply, I'm actually reconsidering getting that computer. I checked out their company on the BBB and they have a C rating, so I'm not to sure about them.

    I was actually wondering if you knew what a good gaming computer is for around $800-$1100. If anyone could suggest some, then it'd be great.

    Thanks again
