    Circuit City is in servere financial trouble, and has laid off a number of their staff. Nobody knows how reliable their support or warranty will be.

    I would not get a Compaq Presario without a long warranty... and that one has only one year.
    Both video cards are OK, but they may put a great deal of extra stress on the system, particularly the power supply. I would want a minimum of 500 Watt power supply with 24 amps or higher output... and more is better.

    I agree, Circuit City is doing bad at the moment and are just trying to sell anything so they lowered all the prices from Very high to almost nothing :haha:

    Do you live in the US or somewhere else?

    If you live in the US you can try www.newegg.com for parts to build a computer or buy a prebuilt from there that are pretty good for the price they have.

    If you live in Canada then you can try www.TigerDirect.ca ( I think that's it, don't remember )

  5. I would suggest getting a Dell that matches your needs for computing. This way you can choose the parts that get put into your PC. - http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/xpsdt_410?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs
