I agree with spending more money (though maybe not quite $600
) on games .. even a $3600 pc is going to be almost obsolete in a few years unless you upgrade it. I'd say spend maybe $2000 max
on the computer, spend a couple hundred on some games and frills (i.e. water cooling, lights, etc.), and save the rest. After all, a huge part of building a computer is building
it and being proud of the result. Most of the fun I've had with my computer, honestly, was putting it together, cutting it up, putting on custom heatsinks, making the wiring tidy, etc. In fact the only game I've played on my comp is HL2, which I beat and uninstalled last week. What's the extra $1600 on two videocards and the fastest CPU in the world going to get you? An few dozen extra frames per second in today's games? That rig might be totally incompatible with the games that come out in a few years.
