I like the case but i see a huge bottleneck and its not the video card (even that one is to). That HD is uber slow this time and i would know cause i had to deal w/ one before. Just build one yourself w/ some better parts.

All of this comes to a total of 743 plus whatever case you want. If it's to expensive get this video card:

This setup will cream the one you were looking at on ebay in almost every single aspect.

I personally dont like buying expensive stuff off of ebay, buts that because i have had bad experiences with it. I agree completely with everyone who says build. That PC looks nice at the beginning, but you can see it has some pretty crappy parts in it.

PS.
I noticed lower on the page that the same seller is selling "best gaming PC ever" for $2500.

It is soooo overpriced. You only get 2 6600GTs with it . So that seller is probably not too good if he is saying that his other stuff is "the best ever" when it is not even close.

build your own, or get custom parts and have the company assemble it. Use places like ibuypower.com and monarchcomputer.com
