    Well, I would build my own computer but Im really tired of doing that, but I still might consider it, but for now I was wondering if there are any really good companies out there that make GREAT PC's(like voodoo pc except they're kinda bad now) companies I wanna stay away from are alienware dell, hp. so PLEASE everyone if you have a site let me know by posting it on this thread thanks for the help!

    Take a look here..

    Come on though, nothing beats building it yourself.. Takes 1 hour max to put it together, and saves you money! :)

    Man I can't imagine you being satisfied with a manufactured pc. I know it is more of a PIA to build one, but at least you know exactly what is installed. You have the freedom to choose the exact parts you want vs sorta fitting the bill.

    Are you going to be overclocking the CPU and Graphics Card?

    If so the 5850 you have picked out wont overclock far because its a non reference card (fan in the center).

    The 930 is a good chip but if you want something that clocks well a older batch 920 (3800#)
    is much better and cheaper.

    I wont be overclocking anything trying not to wear out parts, and Im not really skilled in it and I dont want to follow a guide, Im not going to overclock anything

    besides I heard ups and down about the 920 vs the 930 some say the 930 overclocks more and some of the benchmarks I've seen have actually shown that, and I just dont care much about OCing, the pc im getting is going to be better than my friends, so thats kinda all i care about,lol(he has a 920, 6 gb, and 280gtx all i remember)

    edit:http://www.hexus.net/content/item.php?item=22622&page=11 review, says that the 930 is "Better than the decent Core i7 920 in every way" and really shines when OC so I may oc but I wont do it myself I'll get someone else that is professional at it to do it for me, otherwise I dont really find OC worth it
