i agree with you, though i think having the best processor, within reason, i'm not going to rush out and buy a new sext core processor just cause i want the best, sext means six BTW, is more important than having the best vid cards.

Well in my case with my new machine I purchased both the top of the line Nvidia cards and the best CPU I could afford.The CPU I got is a
Intel® Core™ i7 Extreme Edition i7-980, hexa 3.33Ghz cores, 12MB Cache.

I would have gotten the best CPU they offered but one it was overclocked to 4.33 which would probably be more likely to lead to overheat problems and two even if I wanted to get it it was out of my price range.

But I would like to recommend the company I'm getting my new rig from. it's called Velocity Micro and they are a small but growing company based in Richmond Virginia which means when I call them for support I'm actaully talking to someone who works and lives in the United States and not in India or somewhere else over seas. We have enough jobs leaving the U.S. as it is and ultimately hurting our economy.

But the most important reason I buy from them is I have never felt as if their tech staff didn't know waht they were doing.

sounds good, do you know if they deliver to Canada, i think i'm going to have to go pre-built with any future rigs after this one, i don't really have the skill to put these things together myself and my old man isn't going to be around forever to help me with these things, and if bill gates is the anti-christ, then dell has got to be like the duke of evil or something, otherwise i'd have bought a computer from alienware this time.

I would like to say yes that they do deliver to Canada but I don't know for certain.

But if you want to check out their website it's Velocitymicro.com. You can contact their sales department Monday through Friday 9am-10pm. 1-800-303-7866

They may be more expensive then Dell but with that higher price you get better quality all around.

And Alienware they are owned by Dell. In fact I may be wrong but I beelive when you call for tech support on an Alienware machine you'll be dealing with Dell support and there is a good reason why in dell's commercials they no long brag about their award winning tech support, I say this from my own personal experience Since I now own a Dell.

yeah, i've heard some bad things about dell, the worst was a rumor, or maybe it's true, about a counter hidden in the dos programming i think it was, that counted down the days until the mobo fried itself on purpose so the purchaser would have to get it replaced by dell specifically.
