Cool glad to know I got the best thing for the money I had. I know I know this aint sh** compared to the computers you guys got but this one is my first since 4 years ago. My ole celeron barely runs far cry I was surprised that it actually installed.

i would go with some cheaper ram, and then after price drops you could have gotten the 3800+

good on ya... you got what you thought was the best for you and your budget and you went for it... No worries about what the others think... some people just like the bragging rights of have an exceptional system, AND having the budget to keep it up! congrats! let us know how it goes with the build when you get it, we're here if you need some help.

sorry for that, i took that kind of personal because i've had people "diss" my old computer like that



the video card is a good choice especially if it can be "unlocked". all in all i think the rig is pretty good by choice of parts, especially seeing as you've avoided all the mistakes i've seen some quite experienced people make
connect3D now laser-shut the extra pipes... and connect3D was the only brand that had x800gto unlock pipes.. and now none. the only ones that unlock (and guaranteed to unlock, and often come unlocked) are the x800gto^2.

oh, and nitestick, sorry, but neither of your comps are monsters.. ... literally i mean.. they're fine fine machines.

Get some cheaper ram; Kingston is usually expensive on theri HyperX line. You can actually pick up 2GB of great OCZ ram for that price.

It's $160 after the mail-in-rebate.
