... so you haven't actually got the machine yet?

If not I would seriously put a hold on those "deal of the century" celebrations because there may be a good reason why it's cheap...

Had the computer since thursday now and I love it. Been messing around with it, overclocked it upto 2.6 GHz at the moment with a core temp of around 33 - 39 celcius. I know that the windows experience index is pretty poor at calculating an accurate score but i dunno how else i can tell you so here we go. Processor 7.1, RAM 5.5 (definately needs upgrading), Graphics 6.5, Gaming graphics 6.5 and primary hard disk 5.8. Got mafia 2 which is an awesome game running so smoothly at 1680 x 1050, dunno the fps though :s and I think that is about it for now. Slowly still overclocking cpu but I am very cautious at stuff like this haha. So i think that this was a pretty good bargain overall
