hl2 runs good on my system at 1024x768 so I think you should be fine there.

eVGA sli editon mobo is actually pretty decent if ur not going to overclock. Most reviews about it are positive and from personal experience I had more trouple with my last asus mobo. AS for the comp, 50-50 as its cheap for a prebuilt but building ur own comp is always better.

I would have gotten a bare bones for around 200-300 and upgraded a few things. Not such a good deal imo...

Wow dude, that's very unfortunate. I'm glad I decided to build my own, as ibuypower was one of the companies I was looking into. Hopefully it turns out ok for you.
