yeah plus you have to think about all the functionality of a built pc. overclocking and all the bios settings, as well as room for upgrades where as the mobo's and cases some pre-builts come with just have no room for upgrade.

and yes a 7600gs would kill an intergrated graphics card

My gaming rig:
ASUS P6T | i7-920 D0 @ 4.0GHZ - 1.25v w/ H50
GTX 460/768MB (750/1500/2000) | 12GB Corsair DDR3-1600 @ (8-8-8-24)
2 x PS-100 32GB SSD Raid 0 | 4 x WD 750GB Raid 5 | Corsair 620HX
Asus 21.6" LCD (1080p) | LG 32" TV (1080p)
Logitech G15 | Logitech MX518 | Logitech MX1100 | Razer Mamba
