If you are willing to build it yourself you could get this system for $854 (or $744 if you use the Windows 7 RC mentioned in Muffin Man's post instead of Vista) which is much better than that prebuilt one.

For some reason I though the 7 RC had a already been taken down. Since it's still up I wouldn't bother getting Vista now. You will still need to buy a copy of 7 eventually but it will save you $110 for the time being.

well, i was more looking into more of a nvidia? i heard that they r better than the radeon. i wuldb willing to spend 20bucks more for better quality.. also i dono so much about amd, tbh, i dono really about amd at all im more of an intel kinda person. so like is that a pretty good amd? plus like i said, wuld it b better buying 1 of those builds or the link i posted up top? i just want my moneys worth and want the best i can get with my money so i dont have to try to upgrade my comp anytime soon and have a fun lag free gaming experience.

also idc about the vista, xp or w.e, i get that for free anyways so dont include that pls, also i dono but i was thinking i can use this dvd burner mayb? ill ask my dad if i can or not too to save sum money on that and mayb get a better sumthin else.

AMD and ATI are far better "Bang For Your Buck" Than intel and Nvidia are.

kcitap that is a Quad Core capable of overclocking to 4.00ghz on air and a video card capable of hitting a 1.00ghz core clock. In fact its the worlds first GPU to hit a 1.00ghz core clock.

Intel and Nvidia are still the kings when it comes to performance, but if it means saving some money for about the same performance, I think its worth it.

Go with Muffinmans build. Oh and you won't be disappointed with the performance of EITHER build. Muffin mans is cheaper and provides better performance though.

umm, is puddle jumpers build better or muffin man's? i noticed the gfx card was changed but the price is only 10 bucks difference, like if its only that lil difference and alot better i will get that instead, agreed? but over all wich is better and i might not need a case atm anyways. wat you guys think i shuld do? also to think about when i get the left over money im gettin new keyboard nd mouse with that lol, but can sum 1 make me liek the best comp for that same price? mayb take a lil of each of their specs and mix em around to c wich is better or sumthing?

not to sound stupid or anything but how can cheaper sumtimes b better performance? and thanks hussein for your help, by performance u mean speed or what? sorry for asking so much questions btw im jsut really nervous cuz my first computer im buying by myself..and its my money ive been saving for a long time so i realllly dont wanna b disapointed.

Well, ima go with muffins build unless a ny one can get me a better one.. ima use the tower i have atm even tho its super old, idc.. also ill get a windows for free.. since ill have 4gb ram shuld i use 64bit? for my computer should i use xp 64bit or get a vista 64 bit? ill get a gamer edition 1, but vista or xp?
