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.
