    this good?

    Yeah man, looks good, if you can handle the price. I wouldn't spend that much on a comp., because they become obsolete so fast, but that's me. That should be wicked fast though.

    Wow that sucks

    :hotbounce I have a smoking Rig and that should play games for the next three or four years, it sould be listed in my profile. I preffer AMD systems but do own a few Intel... but yah that is an old system, I would not even run XP on that system.
    TermalTake makes some nice Towers http://www.thermaltake.com/kandalf.htm I have the silver Tsunami Dream but what ever one you pic, if one of these towers is it, it will be a good start on the LEDs remeber my tower was built more in favor of the AMD you may want to look at larger fans, as the NEW Intel chips are running hotter then the new AMD chips for some reason... but either way there are some real good Cases made by Tt. :hotouch:

    Oops... Tks

    Ah 2700.00 for my system but I got everything at cost from my Dad and Built the rig my self... A bud of mine had to go out and build a system one up on me and put 2 gigs of RAM and the FX55 CPU... the system cost him 4300 the guy I took the system configuration from rung in at 3400 but my ring of friends would rather build from a loacal retailer then a online store... most of the time I buy large projects from Dad as he can get real good deals on stuff then but realy no savings when it is one or two things... I allso like to be able to return stuff at a drop of a hat if it is not working on line you have to pack it up send it off and then you get a new part. :giddy:

    Well...

    Well I paid him for all the stuff he just gave it to me at cost... I know a guy from schoo here that got all his parts on line and his system sucks he paid 4750.00 for everything he was choked at himself and is the biggest joke at school asof this date.
