Motherboard?

ATA or SATA?

Case? # of fans?

Stock cooling, or aftermarket?

Parts (you assemble), pre-built (HP, ALienware, or such), or custom build (ibuypower, Cyberpower, Monarch, Falcon NW, Velocity, or such)?

Well, if it's on the way, any criticism is gonna be kinda useless

Anywho, the price: performance ratio for the 7900GTX isn't great. The 7900GT is a much better buy, although doesn't perform quite as good.

2GB doesn't give that big of a performance increase over 1GB. If you are overclocking, that RAM will likely give some modest overclocks, but it kinda depends on the mobo you chose as well.

Nitpicking aside That is overall a really good system! It should perform quite nicely with anything you throw at it

Ordering an Alienware with the parts that you wanted isn't at all like actually putting the comonants together. But I guess that all depends on what you define "custom" to mean.

Well then Ibuypower.com/cyberpower.com ect do not count as a custom build either, only custom build in that terminology is the parts you buy to put together.
