Also, I'm not that experienced with PC's, but I know how RAM, GPU's, and CPU's work. Do you guys I should custom build my next PC?
Looks great to me, I paid almost that much for my PC, and without the monitor and peripherals. How do you like it? iBuyPower has great prices, I hope it works out good for you
This thing is a beast to me! Thats because I upgraded from a laptop which has a Mobility Radeon HD 3650. I love it so far. I can run MW2 on maxed settings, with the highest AA and AF, and it only uses up 50% of the CPU. Only problem I have with it is that it sometimes gets loud when I severely multitask with many power-hungry applications. I need to install an extra fan :P
Also, since you are great with PC's (You have solved several of my problems in other threads) I have 2 questions:
1. Can you connect a SATA-II device to a SATA-I external enclosure?
2. How hard is it to install an extra case fan? Does it require a lot of technical skill?
