    Well, I am in the market for a new computer. I would like to find a place that would offer a warranty of at least 2 years, so custom building is out of the option. Has anybody ordered from a custom customization website for computer and has found good prices, service, and warranty? I am looking for a gaming pc for about $1200. I would like an AMD processor and would like to be able to play doom 3/HL 2 on high settings. I would also like at least a 100 gb HD. Thanks.

    Few things. First, the motherboard is PCI-Express and your video card is AGP - won't work. You'll need to get a PCI-Express version of the X800 video card. Also you should get PC3200 RAM for best performance. Unless you are going to be copying lots of DVD's for backup you may not need the two optical drives. You also need to buy a powersupply. Also you may want to shop around for the best prices; check out Newegg.com or compare prices at PriceWatch.com
