Default So far so good with gaming rig!

Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks to everyone who gave me assistance on selecting parts to build my rig. It's a simple yet what I see a good setup for gaming. As I sit now with my laptop on my lap, the only reason I'm not online on my NEW computer is I don't have a wireless card yet to connect to my home network.

All that's left is to take it to my buddy who is a networking genius and get my antivirus/networking up to snuff and buy a kickin monitor.

I appreciate all the help. This forum is an absolute wealth of knowledge!!
