Please rate this system just for the hell of it. I would mostly be playing games and image editing on it. No way I would be able to afford this anytime soon but eh, nice to dream ain't it?

I had a chuckle about how much of a dick I am, then I thought I'd come back and post something useful. If you're not getting a system for a while anyhow, keep an eye out on some new technology which is going to shove that stuff into obsolescense pretty quickly. What, you ask? PCI Express, and the new generation of video cards (ATI/Nvidia both) for instance!

I wouldnt tell someone to wait for these items if they were ready to buy today, but that's not the case. So wait, and see!

Don't feel bad i used to do it at alienware's site awhile back, then i bought one regretted it and decided to learn about computers, now i love computers. :)

It's a shame with all this leet gear there isn't any good games out for it. Lol. What a waste really. I could have had my 1988 white lx mustang already.
