Thanks for showing off. What's next? That's funny!

If you are serious and have money to blow, then go with Bluto and get the biggest Monitor you can get. That's like $1000 for a 25" monitor or $3000-5000 for a Plasma screen or even better ~$10,000 for a projection HDTV 100" screen.

A DVD player, a room to hold a few of your friends, Bose 6-speaker surround sound system, sound proof the room for best sound and hold on to your seat for some kick ass Unreal Tournament 2004 gaming.

If you want to watch HDTV then get rid of that nVidia card and get yourself a ATI 9800 AIW (All In Wonder) video card. That would be a mind blowing system setup.

Just 1 more,make sure all 3 ram slots are filled with the max you can use.
You never know when 512 will slow you down.
