Doesn't Microsoft have something on their site where you can Windows 7 for free if you bought Windows Vista within a specific window prior to release? No pun intended.

Well I'm not sure if "top of the line" is the right thing to say here. NVIDIA... In my opinion you get more for the cash with ATI. Also 7200 RPM? 10000 RPM makes your compo go alot faster. But what I reacted most to was the processor. 2.66 Ghz?? I have 3.16, and no, it wasn't really that expensive. Also, where is the case? I'm getting the Cooler Master Cosmos Silver... Otherwise, 12gb RAM is just plain sick, but nice setup anyway. On a side note, did you know that a program has to be written for the purpose to use multiple cores of a processor? Like if you have 8 cores it wont make any difference except if the program actually is made to use all eight cores. PROTIP: Assemble you computers yourself. Better specs and prices.

I never liked ATI's drivers, but I haven't used them since AMD took over so who knows, maybe they've changed.

Man ATI drivers can be a pain.

Thats not what I was saying. I was saying it is kind of retarded to ask opinions on a high end computer, when you obviously know at least a little about what you're looking for. It seems more like you're just wanting to boast rather than ask opinions - no offense.

The whole whining thing wasn't referring to you. Re-read it. I said IF you want something to whine about, then I could tell you that the Core I7 included with this computer is the lowest Core i7 that I know of. I'm just saying that a perfectionist/completist/elitist whatever MIGHT bitch at the fact that its the slowest core I7 processor to boot - not you.

@ Jaguar
Your argument about NVidia vs ATI boils down to pure personal preference imo. NVidia and ATI fangirls will always clash. Personally I've had more luck out of Nvidia cards in terms of stability and performance vs ATI cards. I will use either though =].

"A 3.16 isn't that expensive" A 3.16 core i7 is way more expensive than a 2.66 core i7. A 920 2.66 is 200-300 USD? A 3.16 is almost 1000? Yea . . .not really that expensive in comparison huh. Also compare performance(referring to charts, no clocking). . . not worth the price difference right now. A 2.66 ghz processor(p4+) will run pretty much any game out right now with the right vid card to back it up. Also you are right about software having to be written to utilize multiple cores, BUT when running multiple programs your computer should automatically distribute the processes evenly between the cores. . . Not to mention multiple core processors run MUCH cooler than single cores. Windows vista has multi core support, and as far as I remember, XP SP 3, regardless of the problems it has, added support (or further support?) for multiple core processors on Windows XP Systems.

A 2.66 ghz core i7 processor is approximately 22% faster BY AVERAGE than a low end -q6600 core 2 quad. - Theres more to it than just raw clock speed. a core2quad running at 2.66 would probably only be a few % faster than a 2.4 q6600. My brother runs a q6600 stock with about 6 gigs of ram and it is plenty fast
