Hey, just found this computer advertised for 650 / 640 with vat included! so i was well impressed. the system seems stable with the PSU brand and power... the computer i expect would be professionally wired for best performance. the 1gb GPU is good aswell, heres a upg i made to it see if it would work well

I would also be wondering about if i would have to reformat the machine to install the new Windows 7 after it comes out.. or would the RC just update with a valid code?

i would be using this pc for main reasons :

Grapic art
Gaming (nessesity) -- WOW - COD4 - COD4MW2(On release ofc:)) - SIM 3 (not massive demand) this type of gaming, FPS MMO and so on.. :blink:

Also it would have to be capeable of running stable and not slow down if 50% of the 1TB gets filled...
Do you think this would be a good choice @ 678
