Alright - will ask him next time I see him - tommorw. and find out what the CPU, Mobo and psu are so I know 100%. but so far it's sounding great
because the monitor is worth over 100$ it's self and then win7 64bit is another $100 so the parts only come up to $300.. which is pretty good.
**note** when he bought it a year ago it was about $1500 /wout Monitor.
