Get a 64-bit version. If you can't get it now, you ca have Microsoft send you a 64-bit copy for free after you buy the 32-bit version. The most ram tat a 32-bit OS can see is 3.5GB.

Well alright, but Windows Vista is great. If your going with a computer like this, you would better off get Vista to use DX10. With XP you can't use DX10.

But after I changed it to a quad core, changed the Ram, and changing the OS, I get . . .

$2,471.35 With Tax and Shipping

The parts would be:

Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146777
Great Timings

Operating System: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16832116378
64 Bit XP, I would still highly recommend going Vista. If you don't, no DX10 for you. That means you can't run Crysis on Very High settings, or some other games in a DX10 mode(Which looks A LOT better than DX9)

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115017
It is an Old CPU, bit it is still good. If you want to spend a little more money and get a bit more performance I would get a Quad core from the Yorkfield family. The differences are a higher FSB speed and 4Mbs more L2 Cashe. That CPU would be thing one right here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115041

Totals with shipping and tax are:

Total with The Q6600 is: $2,471.35
Total with The Q9550 is: $2,610.45

Still saving $400 when you get better Ram and a Quad Core CPU, which is quite a steal from the Alienware. What is this system on Alienware's website cost? Probably a lot more due to the Ram and Quad Core.


ALSO! HOLYSKY
Please tell me why you would go with that GPU?
Look here, the VANTAGE 3Dmark GPU score is 14017 while the 260GTX has a GPU score of 7917 ? That's almost double!
Look at the Pic here:

You just posted evidence that that GPU is worse than the 4870X2!

I'm not a fan of the Lian Li cases. They cool extremely efficiently. But, they don't look as nice.

Look at page 1 and you can see why not to choose the 260GTX.

As for Perfect World, here's the link to the forums(I googled this) and it says all you have to do is run it in administrative mode. It's as simple as right clicking the shortcut and clicking Run as Administrator.

And look at it this way, if you bought two 280GTX's and SLIed them for a price over a 4870X2, you would get a 3DMark Score of 15K. While spending less money than 2 280GTX's you get a 3DMark Score of 14K. The extra price isn't worth it.

Aye, It's the best price-to-performance video card out, and it's the best single video card as well. It's got 2 GPU's on one card so it's like having two 4870's on one PCI-E slot.
