    7.5/10

    Monitor is small.
    current gpu is okay but seems mismatched against the i7.

    8.7 / 10. Would have given a 9 if you had a GTX4xx or a HD5xxx. :)

    7.7/10

    quite solid, if slow compared to what i'm used to (cough, cough) - but overall quite good. Also nice that you only need a 400W PSU to run it, power efficiency is always good.

    9.8/10

    I like your configuration very much, Mussels. Very balanced choice of components. No waste/overkill and no handicaps there! SOLID!
    The 9.8 is because i don't like Bluray disks...Got sometinhg against them...other than that, perfect!

    lol - the standard is quite a pain in the ass, but its quite tolerable now with the new VLC player + cat 10.7's hardware acceleration.

    Excellent rig. Only thing to upgrade to would be SSDs I think.

    I'm not too sure about laptops but i'm pretty sure yours is good. I'd say 8/10

    Very impressive configuration for a laptop.
    The only downside is the processor, that seems underpowered considering the rest.

    @mithrandir
    Would it be surprising it can play games? :laugh:
    Yeah, it needs an overhaul, but not much can be done there without doing a full upgrade. But I actually am in the process of changing some things. (recommendations?)
    And yes, the LCD kicks ass! :rockout:

    For your system I'll give a 8.8/10.
    I like it, fully capable for todays computing and gaming and with room for improvement. Nice choice of brands. :toast:

    Get a new mobo and a GFX card like a HD 5750 and you'll have a good gaming PC ;)

    9/10 the only thing I don't like is the logitech speakers with that much invested in the PC and that nice of a soundcard get a real surround sound

    8/10 for the HTPC. And yes, several people have already asked me to get a new surround sound system. :laugh:

    I'm going to give Tiberius there a 6.8/10. Points for the OC'd E8200, 8GB mem, and monitors but deductions for the Raidmax and Vista.
