ok, so i was just surfing alienware the other day and i saw how on certain comps u could "compare" ur pc to alienware's. for me, labtop out performeded some of the desktops that they were offering. not the best one, of coures, but ones that made it seem pretty pathetic that a labtop beat a desktop. lol. so how does your desktop rate agianst the best from a manu? check it here: http://alienware.com/product_detail_...de=SKU-DEFAULT
but a warning: u gotta use internet explorer to use. i use firefox and i had to switch over. but still. its pretty funny on what the results are. if u get something that says "high perfomance system detected" on this monseter, then u have one heck of pc man!
