Ps. This will replace a dell dimension 3000 2.8ghz, 2g ram,integrated vid, so......yeah :na: 

Thanks,

if you're going to buy a PC like that then at least get a good PSU, get a good 600-700w because at this time you won't be adding a second card for SLI since the far more powerful directx 11 cards come out soon.

I am thinking of ordering a rig from cyberpower and I am curious how your experience and system turned out...

Thanks

Do not get the gtx 280. It's old, it's a power hog, and it's being phased out. Stick with the gtx 275

That MB only does "Crossfire" so if your going "SLI" later you need the P6T w/no "SE". 50 more bucks i think.
