    And more important than all of that........

    the Altec 5.1 surround system :D
  3. Cool, nice setup man. I hope to upgrade my computer soon, by the end of the year so I can take it to uni.

    That system looks really nice. I am about to build my own PC from scratch. I like the specs on yours. Let us know how it performs for you.

  6. Nice computer...but it's missing one thing....
  7. I guess I should have taken the picture with my iPod and PowerBook on the desk too.

    If you don't mind me asking, around how much does a PC like that cost?
  9. Since you performs like a champ...I never have any slowdown whatsoever while playing Diablo II, C&C Generals, and Emperor: Battle for Dune. Make sure you go with Serial ATA Hard Drives though...they absolutely blow IDE away.
  10. Well, with this one, I purchased everything (Including Wireless Keyboard/Mouse, Flat-Screen CRT Monitor, etc.), and had to have it 2-Day Fedexed (Only way Newegg will ship to Alaska or Hawaii), but it still only ran me $1850.

  11. Well, in that case...I condone your purchase. :cool: Unfortunately, some programs just weren't developed for games. :bawl:
  12. Games are why my desktops are always Windows-based. But I strangely prefer Apple laptops over Windows-based.
  13. No doubt! That's precisely why I bought an iBook! :bassist:

    Very nice specs. AMDs are awesome processors. Nothing better than a custom built PC!

    Nice job with that :D I love going with 1gig plus of ram; it really performs nicely.

    All I have to say though, is who cares about the desktop pic, lets see inside. Do you have any modding/lighting/windows or anything?

    anyhow though, enjoy it
  17. Awesome specs! I'm glad it's working out for you! That's a sick amount of ram, btw. :p Go AMD!

    I have a question that you might be able to help me with. I'm going to be building a similar machine for college in a few months, and I will need a monitor with the machine. I was thinking about getting a flat-panel, like yours so space will not be an issue on a college desk. I've heard when playing games, flat-panels can have trouble running at certain "non-native" resolutions. Has this been a problem for you? Would you recommend a flat panel for a college student who plays games? Thanks!

    Btw, I'm definitely thinking getting this for the case!
