The Abit AN-M2 HD has DVI integrated onto the mobo that needs changing luke
I will change it in a moment, thank you.

these two paragraphs should be worded better. When I read it, I feel like there is an unusual emphasis on NVIDIA
i do not feel so, so as long as no one else says something about it, it will remain the same. Thank you for the input though.

Quote:
Something you might want to add add would be an explanation of ATi and Nvidia's model numbers so people understand why a 9600gt is not better than a 8800ulktra.
what you did is good so i will put it directly in. Thanks for the input.

lol ok, i will.

EDIT: uh oh, it's been over 24 hours, i can't edit them, i forgot about that. Can a mod do what the people suggested, and also and a heading in the misc section (with the right tags) about the naming of the video card brands, also fix the typos (add the e after pci in the video card section and also in post #10's quote i noticed that i said "cpu" in stead of "GPU", please fix all these thing or some how give me the privilege to do so. Thanks)

BluRay is not a must have component. Not every PC is setup for HD let alone people wanting to spend the money on a BluRay Drive.
