gee thanks a lot, i spit my coffee onto my lcd screen when i saw the price for the VAIO . . .
NO, JUST KIDDING
but seriously, had i HAD coffee in my mouth, i would be calling HP tech support . . . which is a punishment in itself . . .
3 words :
BUILD YOUR OWN
that vaio system is more than $700 OVERPRICED . . . dont waste the money . . .
also . . . its kinda hard to say which cpu you should use . . .
intel good for video editing
amd good for gaming . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
i'd go with a socket 939 amd athlon 64, reason being, is that the newer p4s run hotter, they usually require newer, untested technology, etc . . .
good video cards . . . eVGA or XFX 6800GT . . .
