I know someone who just purchased a Radeon X800XL, so he is selling his 9800pro. He told me he would sell it to me for 100 bucks. He said it also has a arctic cooling fan on it already (retails for 30). To me this seems like a good deal, a 9800 pro with a top-line cooling fan, all for 100 bucks.
So do you think this is worth the investment?
My second problem (well not really) is regarding a laptop. I am going to be a HS senior this year, so my parents and i have agreed that around graduation we are going to purchase a laptop. I have already thrown away the possibility of a dell or HP just because of the history of them vs others. I have pretty much found the one i want, and i think it is absolutely the best on the market.
After doing a lil research i discovered the new Acer Ferrari 4005, which goes for around $2100 if you buy from the right place. (link here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834115194
-it looks great
-top of line athlon 64
-gig of ddr400 memory
-writes cds and DVD's
-nice size HD
-bunch of ports
-3 hour battery life
-all that stuff for ONLY 6.5 pounds!
***EDIT***: This also had built in bluetooth and wireless internet. Another question i have is how much will leaving bluetooth on for the mouse affect battery life?
So i guess what i am getting at is if you guys see any downside to this laptop? Is there a better choice?
thanks in advance for any input
