Default Looking at purchasing this comp

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...7071&CatId=114

How does it look?

I'm going to pair it with a 24" widescreen HD monitor

That's not too bad for an overpriced prebuilt computer. It could stand to have a much better video card. For that price, I would expect it to have at least an Nvidia GTX 200 series card.

EDIT:

My bad. It has two 9800 GT in SLI. But still, a single GTX 200 series card would be better and faster.

That actually is a nice computer. It could be built for a little cheaper if you did it yourself but if your not into doing that than that really isn't all that bad of a deal. It does have an I7 920, x58 chipset, 12GB's DDR3 ram, 1TB of storage, and dual 9800Gt's.

Im sure it will be up to anything you throw at it and later down the road it is very upgradable. Seems to be a pretty solid deal if you don't want to build it yourself.

If you are still looking around, iBUYPOWER makes some really nice systems at decent prices.

Looks like a nice machine. Like everyone else said, you could probably build something like that for cheaper...and maybe even better...but otherwise...thats a hell of a good rig!
