Yeah, $1600 is a **** of a lot of money. The one you posted Abstract, that seems pretty good. I was told that without a quad core, I won't be able to run most games very well. That's why I was looking at that mSI model there.
Also, in comparison to that one you just posted, how is this one?

Thanks for the help.
PS: I am not looking to max out Crysis or anything, but I'd still like to be able to play games on high settings sometimes.
