You can read this review where they used a HD 5870 video card: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpus/2010/01/04/intel-... wolfman123bugs March 6, 2010 12:45:21 PM Like GhislainG said, what are your expectations? More over what is your tech level. You could probably custom build a system that would out perform the one you listed for about the same price. I did a quick newegg build and came up with this: Asus p55d pro I5-750 G.Skill 1600 ddr3 Ripjaws Hitachi 1t HD OCZ modular 600w psu Total was $635 throw in a $100 ebay 8800GTX, case and peripherals and your out the door for a little over $850 just my 2 cents...
