    Is this PC I'm planning on buying a good deal? And has anyone had any good/bad experiences with ACER products? Thanks for any input. Oh and one last thing. Is it possible to get a case that can cool the video card better? I hear that the 9800 GT cards get really hot while running games.

    Since it sounds like you want a different case anyway, I'd just go ahead and build my own, if I were you. You'll save money and be able to choose exactly what components you want.

    On the same note as Cazio's post, I would suggest pricing out all of the components that are in that rig separately, but include the case you'd want instead, and see what the price is.

    I'll bet it will be less expensive than what that package costs. Building a computer is pretty straightforward, and there are plenty of online guides that can take you through the process.

    That PC would likely handle just about anything.

    On Acer...

    Acer used to make good quality PCs and had horrible tech support, which was exact opposite of Dell, who had poor quality products and excellent tech support. I hear Acer is really trying to turn this around and offer good product and good support, but I don't know where they stand right now.

    If you are not comfortable building your own, look around. Acer, HP, Dell, Alienware, Falcon and more are out there, and your budget gives you alot to work with.
