So I did some researching here at Toms and added in some features I have always wanted like a ssd and 2 video cards in sli. I chose the 2gb 460's because the price diff between them and the 1gb versions was very small which in and of itself seems odd but I decided to go for the extra 2 gigs in the hopes that it would future proof my system for a little while longer and the cost to benefit of the 460 card (based on reviews) is so much better than anything else. I dont like AMD (too hot) and never had a good experience with radeon ever so that went into my decision making process. Feel free to critique my build chouce below and I welcome constructive critisism and praise. Btw I dont have time to build my own system althoiugh I wish I did (so fun) so I chose Cyberpower as opposed to Frys to build my system this time around.... Fingers Crossed big time.

Really? The price includes CA sales tax 250 shipping 65 Operating system win 7 ultimate and Microsoft office business.

I actually thought that the price was good if you take those things into consideration. Is it really overpriced?

I have shopped around looking at other custom computer configuratiors and there is not a better deal to be had anywhere. I did about 3 hours of research and reading and I defy anyone to show me a better cost to benefit ratio on a prebuilt system.

What remains to be seen is how much tlc they will take into making sure the overclocking is done correctly and that the components all marry together correctly and that all the system, sli and bios settings are set up correctly.

I would really appreciate any feedback you guys can offer me.
