It's a pain reliever, kinda like Aspirin.

The only computers i have ever had were built by my dad, if you build it proper it could last for probably 2-3 years max for top of the line games, what do you plan on playing or are playing now? the thing you have to realize it there wont be a 24/7 tech line to help you trouble shoot all the bugs, ive never had one that worked perfect from day one but damnt they were fast and cheap, so make sure you have some wicked computer knowledge or wicked research skills to trouble shoot yourself.

There are plenty of books and stuff that show how to do it, but I'll make sure I have some more resources before starting.

The games out now that I want to play are like Splinter Cell: Double Agent, and Rainbow Six: Vegas...Mostly first-person shooter games, but also some racing games and stuff too. I'll really have to think it over whether to build it or not, because +$2,000 for a computer seems like a waste of money, but if it's going to last for a while, it doesn't seem that bad lol.

if you want hassle free your best bet is usally something prebuilt, and alienware makes some kick ass packages, get one built for extreme BF2 gaming and it should be able to play anything on the planet for at least a couple years.

I watched F&F:Tokyo Drift today. Obviously not the most realistic film ever made, but good all the same! I couldn't help but wonder how much Vin Diesel got paid for his 30-second appearance in the movie. Anybody know?

I thought Alienware overpriced their stuff. I would buy one pre-built, but I can't find exactly what I want - for example 2 AMD FX-72 processors on the ASUS L1N64 nVidia nForce 680a motherboard, with a eVGA AR GeForce 8800GTX GPU. (Just throwing out random things) and most places don't offer those combinations. I'll definitely look at Alienware though, thanks

they may be overpriced like i said ive never bought a prebuilt, but they make a BF2 specific frame rate pusher. My dad likes getting into heavy overclocking and cooling to acheive awesome numbers

When you get a car, you're going to be asking yourself why you spent $2000+ on a computer and even more for upgrades and games when your old computer would have gotten you by. Maybe the average person wouldn't, but you seem like a car enthusiast. Unless your a computer guy as well, then I guess you'd ask yourself why you spend $2000 to make your car 1 second faster in the quarter mile when you could've gotten a nearly top-of-the-line computer.

I can't find the BF2 specific system, but the more time I spend on that website, the more I think those things look amazing and have great setups. I might get one from there instead of building.

EDIT: Just saw this

Yeah, that's a good point. I'll have to decide which to buy first. I won't really do too many upgrades to my car when I get it (almost definitely under $1,500)

I just saw the Discovery Channel special "The Lost Tomb of Jesus", and that's pretty amazing. However, I'm not sure whether it's just exaggerated for ratings or not. Has anyone else seen it/know how accurate the stuff they say are (Like the probability of them being wrong about it is 1 in 36000)?

I'm pretty sure that thats literally the last thing America needs. Plus, they look like moldy dog craps. Probably delicious though.

LOL, They've been about for years! I have to say though, they've never really appealed to me...
