What do you guys think?
Well, it looks great to me! But I'm not one who should be giving out advice.
But maybe a bit more info will get you a quicker response, though it's saturday so things may be slow around here.
I assume this is a gaming rig? What kind of monitor are you going to use? I read somewhere that for the really high resolution textures you may want your GPU to have more memory. But that's assuming this is a gaming rig, you want to play in really high resolutions and my memory is correct. So don't take my word for it .
In any case I'm jealous, it looks really nice.
Thanks for the response, yea you are probably right, some more information would help lol. I plan on using it for gaming, and the monitor I'm using is pretty old, its a Samsung Syncmaster 171v.
right the system looks good with a few adjustments it will be great
like ConBas said a 8800 would be better so a 8800gtx/ultra with finish it off nicely or if your budget can't stretch that much make sure you get a 640Mb 8800gts to make sure games will run smooth.. a 320Mb is good but the more the merrier
about your choice of OS, windows XP i would advise you go with vista home premium 64bit or... if you still like XP dual boot XP and Vista.
also im very happy with the warranty 3 years
also a few other things i would like to ask...
what keyboard, mouse and speakers you using for your GAMING rig theres no point in spending $2000 on a PC and you cant interact with it properly.
