thats retarded. and the price is worse.

8 gigs of soem good DDR2 and NORMAL hard drives would be fine and would cut god knows how much off the price >.>

and 300 gigs is crap. id fill that in a week.

still a ridiculous system though XD

Have you guys not seen the skulltrail benchmarks on tomshardware? In most cases the dual CPU set-up performed worse than a single processor. The only tasks it did better were video encoding and rendering. Skulltrail is overpriced and useless for gaming.

Given the human central nervous system can't pecieve past 20 fps, that would make your dipstick usable for testing the depth of a cowpie. What is the word for idiot in German? Idiot! A rose by any other name remains a rose. Sheesh!
