    Hi guys. I just bought a new computer and it is in the process of being built. I love gaming and im buying the system to replace my current one which has been unable to play new games for a while now (P1.6 w/512 Megs Ram). Anyway, i probably should have asked this before i bought it :) but would this system be able to play most games out there well and with most of the graphics options maxed out? Thanks guys!

    I don't think you'll have any problems in my opinon. But as usual ask for a second opinon.

    i would stay away from vista. main reason, there are MANY games out now that have some bugs with it. On top of that the 64 bit version will have even more problems (drivers, and games don't work well). The only good thing about 64 bit, you can have more than 3 GB of ram.

    IMO, if you really want vista, go for 32 bit (not much if any performance difference from 64 bit). Games makers will be putting out more patches to fix what is wrong with them.

    except that, looks good.
