I bought my Acer Aspire 7750G-6645 from TigerDirect for $550.00 after $50.00 mail in rebate. You need a third party bios flash to activate AMD as Only video card but it's a minor detail for me. Do not update drivers unless from Acer. Basically any 2000 series i5 Intel will perform on video games quite well and can be upgraded as far as ram, look for the best dedicated video card you can get for the money. Stay away from i7 cpus for now, as it pushes the price up and stock speed is only 2.2ghz. Do not look at hyped up "turbo" speeds. I wanted a 2540 cpu but for a 17" screen that's easy on the eyes, I could not find a better deal or one that would justify the extra 100mhz speed.
Is that million Cash, Wire or Visa transfer ??? :-D
