Why cant you go for the Sager?

Similar Price,
Same Res,
OK less RAM but it is DDR3, (can be optimised to 4GB) and you could save on the OS by getting 32-bit
Better GPU

I would go for the sager, gonna easily run CS:S on medium

Where do you live? You are only going to find the Sager systems online. They generally aren't sold retail like HP's, Dell's and Gateway's.

I am waiting to here from them to see how much the shipping cost would be.
But i dont like the idea if i have to ship it over seas if there would be a problem of any kind.
