looks like a decent rig. My only complaint is that the 7950GT does not have directX 10.

I'm looking forward to Crysis which uses DX10 and i would be sad if i spent that kind of cash and couldn't play it in all it's glory...

envy, If you want a kickass system for around that much money build it piece by piece and we will help you pick out the parts and then build put it together.

Becuase honestly I don't think that is a good deal as for $1350.

For 1350 I could put together a system with I bet 2GB of ram an E4300/DS3 and an 8800GTS 320MB.

now THAT would be a system that would kick ***. I have to go to school now but i'll be back and if you decide to do what I did and a lot of other people do and buy each piece by piece I'll show you how I would spend $1350 bucks heh, and it will destroy that little ibuypower pc.

EDIT: I had time and I build a system with an E6600/DS3 2GB G.Skill DDR2-800 ram, an 8800GTS 320MB, zalman9500 CPU cooler, and the total came out to $1250.

I originally had an E4300 which is just fine for gaming but I ram out of things to buy at around $1120 lol so trust me I think about $1300 these days is the sweet spot in terms of performance for your money that is a frickin SWEET system man trust it your own.

I'll post the whole thing once I get home today
