    thank you! so we just print out the forms and send them in?

    I think the part has to come to your house and u need to take some SKU sticker or something else off of the box and than put it together with the form and ship it.

    U know, they hope u don't ship it on time or at all : )

    So ship it the first week. Don't procrastinate like I do sometimes : )
  30. Yes, send me the pic too : )
  31. so is it a well balanced pc? I mean how well do you think it can run games?
  32. stanley2428 said:

    Most games should run on High -> Very High settings at 1920x1080. Compared to a Walmart $800 build this is going to be a lot faster.

    BTW what are you storing your data on? HDD/SSD + DVD drive?

    I have about 3000 DVD's and I don't use them as a back up anymore, because the HDD price was so low, I have now 12+TB in dozen HDD's. and whole bunch of the USB sticks.
  34. Of course I burn a DVD every now and than. I still have about 100 standing by : )
  35. Did u read the review?

    U can OC the card really easy.

    If the OP doesn't have one it might be a tad bit difficult to install an OS on a bare drive without one unless the OP has access to someone that can get one on a Flash drive..

    In my case I have both a DVD-burner and a Blu-Ray burner although I only have about 2-5 DVD's left and 15-20 BD-R disks. I like being able to burn off 25GB at a time for about the price of 4-5 DVD's.

    I never made it to the BR. The HDD got so cheap, I never thought about it twice : )
