thanks a lot for your responses!!
Esp the post about compusa, wow, thats a killer deal, i think the only difference between the vx-A1 and that is the processor. The one i posted has a Q9000 Quad Core 2.0GHz.
I dont want to shoot over 1.2k, and i really like asus, so i think ima stick with that brand. I def need it before July of this year, if i wait a month or so, what should be expecting at 1.1 to 1.2k?
I would like this to be intended as a desktop replacement, and i hope it handles games well
