    Hello greatman. I'd say the first system would be just below average because of the low amount of ram although it is still a decent system. System 2 I'd say would be a bit above average because of the amount of ram but not a lot above average because of the video card. Reasonable system though.



    EDIT: Also, congratulations on your engagement Daveo and I wish all the best to you and your Fiance.

    You know it isnt the very best of the best stuff but there isnt any game I cant play as of right now, there isnt any movie i cant decode in a reasonable amount of time. And there isnt a problem loading my favorite porno in a flash.

    All in all your system is what you make of it. If you knock yourself out trying to keep up with the biggest and badest your going to go broke and insane trying to keep up. If your system suites your needs then it is a top of the line system any day.

    And for all of you FPS nuts needing dual 7900GTX get a grip, if you can live without 300xAA and 3200x2024 your gonna be ok. Anyway Once you get above a certain FPS that most midrange cards can provide your limited to other things such as internet connection speed so FPS isnt goinna really help all that much, sure you can be getting 2000fps in F.E.A.R but if you have lag up the **** someone with a 7600GT and a good connection is gonna come and teach you a few things. Plus i dont know very many serious gamers who have the cash to blow on high high end stuff anywho.....They are gamers, main motivation is to game....not to make money to buy the biggest and badest :D

    It will tear through anything you'd throw at it; therefore, I'd call it somewhat high-end. The only reason I would not call it very high-end is that it doesn't contain the best hardware throughout, but still very good.

    Could it be faster? Sure.

    SLI would be a good addition for gaming, you could throw in SCSI and 15k drives, maybe a two way CPU setup... a 1000w PSU... But the latter three ideas are just getting rediculous for a 'home' system.

    And if you posted something with those additions, people would still tell you that you are missing stuff or could improve this or that... etc... Everyone's a critic. ;)

    If you want a high end system you should upgrade to a more recent video card, otherwise that's really good.

    Sigh... this all reminds me that it's getting time to upgrade. Remember when Hyper-Threading was all the rage? That's when I built my rig.

    Granted, it still does what I ask it to do very nicely, but there's some demon inside me that keeps telling me to go into debt so I can build myself a dual-core screamer. Of course, give me another year and a half and I'll definitely be drooling over QUAD-core... Sheesh, it never ends.
