  2. thank you hpsucks
    in all honesty i have learned not to trust factory made computers such as cyberpowerpc etc.. because i have had too many bad experiences with them but on another note i will look into that gtx 260 as it sounds very interesting
  3. even the ati 5770 is a great card

    bang for buck and nvidia dont sit well together

    and the sansung f3 1tb its currently the fastest 1tb on the market
