In no way am i saying e-bay is bad....I buy ALL of my pc games there and save tons of money.....also I sell stuff there constantly......I love e-bay........I just can't say that the service there is better than newegg, because you are dealing with way too many individuals on e-bay compared to newegg.......and especially for your 1st online purchase.....newegg is way easier.

Quite a good pc but the graphics is crud
case is ok nothing special and it doesn't mention the psu which leads me to believe they used the rubbish one that came with the case.

Ya it was lol 580W I was just posting it because they asked about spec's and price. seemed like a "fair" price and alot of room for upgrades down the road as I can afford them. got me off my Athalon 64,ASUS K8VX finally
I priced everything out seperately after getting the system and it really was not much more through them.
I also did it because i used the 1 year no interest deal.I just baught a new house 5 mo's ago and can't lay out the kinda cash i would have liked to.
It runs nicely looks good to me, but i agree it leaves much to be desired down the road. right now i am enjoying it. runs Crysis everything on high at 1024 wich to me looks gloriouse compared to what i had.
I am not an extreme gamer so it will do for now for my needs, that does not mean i don't drool over the 280's lol - EVGA 01G-P3-1286-AR GeForce GTX 280 FTW Edition 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards this a good deal?
