    i get an error when i try to view that link so i cant see the shopping cart. I built me my own computer and i will never buy a factory desktop ever again.
    Newegg is where i got all my stuff to build my PC, there awesome!

    I bought the Geforce nvidea 8800gts, if you want a super gaming computer buy the best video card you are willing to pay for. You also want a minimum of 2gb of ram, all your games coming out now still don't require more than that. I would also go with a dual core AMD procecessor and AMD motherboard, they tend to have faster processing speeds. also make sure that all your hardware can be connected with the newer types of cables, (the name escapes me at the moment) you dont want to use the old ribbon ata cables.

    your thinking of SATA cables. also the mobo is an EVGA motherboard that supports up to a quad core and thats what im gonna run on it. with two one gig sticks of ram and two more slots for upgrades later if needed

    The only thing I would definetly change would be the harddrive.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136011

    And if its just not enouph storage you could just grab a 250gb or whatever you would need for other data (music/pics whatever)

    Depending on how hard core you would want to go, you could upgrade to the 9800 GX2! You would need to change your power supply as well because it takes an 8pin. I would also check out this memery here.

    i like the fact that that hard drive is 10000 RPM and i guess i could just buy another 7200 RPM hard drive and then run both with the OS on the 10000
