Well, it has served me well since 2005, and has played every game at max until Crysis came out. Then I replaced it with a horrible HP laptop, which basically makes the same amount of noise as a small fighter jet engine and delivers equal amount of exhaust heat..
So generally a bad idea.. but if had to be done, it I should go with the cpu + mobo combination.
Just wondering - how powerfull is the onboard graphics of the i5/Z68? Can I watch movies / play casual games?
