Re: New comp (need opinions)
I second what Rohan said. Its a complete ripoff to pay around 2 grand for those specs you listed. If you have around $2000 to spend on a comp, you can get a monster of a machine. Im definitely thinking you'll have enough room to put two GTX 260s or even a 4870 X2 in there. You can also get a CPU with stock speeds at or above 3.0GHz such as the AMD Phenom II X4 940 and 955, or you could go the intel route, get one thats at 3.0+. I don't know if you're an OCer but either way, Id drop that current cpu and go with a higher speed. A good place to LOOK, not neccesarily buy is ibuypower.com and just select the parts and kind of get familiar with what youre looking at. Then I'd suggest go to newegg.com, find the individual parts and add them to cart to see what the price is then. If you have no experience building a computer, then thats fine, you can get one prebuilt and ibuypower.com's prices aren't too bad. If you want to do it yourself (like i wanted to do, but couldn't) then go the newegg route.
