yeh but those are 500$ to 600$ cards, and on top of that i need a new desktop case thats another 150 becuase am planning to get an alienware case , and a new power supply thats close to 1000$, id rather build a computer, but to bad i dont really know about computers.... i just need a real good graphic card that runs games like Flight Simulator FSX, Crysis WarHead, Assasin Creed 2, Call of duty modern warfare 2 etc.. on ultra high graphics without lagging.. i might need to buy a processor if thats even possible

on second thought the ATI Radeon 5850 isnt so expensive... its either between Nividia GeForce GTX 285 or the ATI Radeon 5850, which would you perfer for gaming

Gaming requires a PC dedicated to gaming - and all the parts must work together properly - a quad may bottleneck a 4890 - unless you go for a Phenom X4 955.

1) Overpriced

2) Laptop's have bigger HDD's

3) Not on very high 16xAA, just very high.

4) An AMD system would be cheaper and give you similar performance, built by yourself.
