Get 2 gig of memory for that price, and assuming your a gamer an MX-518 or Razer Diamondback would be a MUCH better choice

XFX video cards are shat and you should get eVGA, Leadtek or BFG

And that LCD screen maybee big, but no good for gaming at at all

Dear Lord... For the last time, will people here stop branding XFX as "Shat". They make quality cards, end of.

Sicarius: If you've got the extra cash and you're going to go for the XFX 7800 GTX(s), get the overclocked 'Extreme Edition'.

You know, you could also add in a cheap 19" CRT and use that for gaming
