ROFL!!!!!!!

DUDE THATS THE BEST POST I'VE EVER SEEN!!! HAHAHA


owned by dario03^^^


but ya, i played bioshock on 1 8500gt full settings, possibly not anti ailasing though. and 825 build shouldnt be too hard for just bioshock


but if your really for just bioshock... y not get hte 360 man? LOL i wouldnt of thought of it myself, but seriously that saves you a good sum of money and then you can save up and build a great pc later

p.s. i just realised im talking to the guy who wants the comp through someone else so whatever

i would tell your mate to phone dell and say i want my xp discs.. my comp is corrupted and i need to format.

my 2 cents
He has the xp disc....how ever it will not install on another pc....some how, and i dont know how....they are tied into the dell mobo.

When you reformat a dell, you dont even have to register windows again.

^ That will not work. Call microsoft or dell, tell them you upgraded your pc slightly and XP will not install. They WILL send you a new serial.

The HD3850 256MB will serve your needs well. That with a 3600+ at 3GHz will be a fine gaming PC.
