CyberPower PC. - Custom Built Gaming PC and Gaming Laptops

I just glanced over the page but looked like some neat rigs. You pretty musch roll your own. (of course they roll the price)
Neat but pricey. A bit of an overkill for what I am doing with it (no games at all). And a fancy box is useless for me because it is buried under the desk.

Custom Build

That was just an example. Do a search for "custom built desktop" or some variation. There is probably several.

Actually CyberPowerPC and iBuyPower are on the low end of pricing of the "Boutique" type builders. Have a look at these builders:

Puget Systems

Digital Storm

XION

Maingear PC

Velocity Micro

Xi Computer Corp.

Thanks Bill for the fine list. Will study it. The model I am now looking at right now is appr. $800 with the graphics upgrade and 2 USB3 ports. They give me a little discount. That will be my benchmark.

Those I listed won't let you sneeze for $800 It was more for comparison to the site HammerHead posted. Have a look at AVA Direct, their prices are more in line with what it would cost you to buy all the parts at retail. A Guy

The closest I could get for a comparable configuration (AMD 6 core though) was $1150.

Drag windows from one PC to the other?
I have a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit laptop and a Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit desktop and I was curious if you could drag a window from my desktop to my laptop and control it on my laptop, and then drag it back. Is this even possible?

Need help with the click+drag look
So a week or two ago my click and drag suddenly changed from click+drag=blue highlight to the click+drag= dashed line highlight (like if you were to use WinXP and wanted to highlight your desktop) It didn't bother me TOO much but I miss the look of the blue box, and I don't know how to change it...
