Are you ordering that computer that you posted above?
Or do you already have it?

I would not buy that machine... do some research on here first and then ask yourself. Why can't I build one myself with what *I* want in it.

moneys tight and the seller would let it go for 350$, can i build a pc for that price... qaud core q6600, 3g ram, litescrib, 500gb hdd, wifi, ??

well can it work with a 9800 gtx atleast or a 260?

well in the future i would upgrade the ram and CPU, or sell it and when i get more money build my own

My 9800GTX+ was the same size and my GTX 285 and they won't fit into the case, You could always just transfur the internals into another case and the cards will go in no problem. you can get one for 425 or so for a cheap one.
