so last night i went over to a friends house. we were messing around with his nitro rc car and what not. then we got on his computer. i started looking at specs and my jaw dropped. he had one of the first dual core intels out. the comp was built summer last year and is running a 2.8ghz dual pentium D. its a sony viao prebuilt completly stock. other specs:1 gig 3/4/4/10 ram, ati x300 128mb, media center. this thing was so fast it was crazy... now we are going to get him either a x1600xt or somthing to replace the x300. i was quite suprised though that on css i could run 1024/768 max visuals inclueding hdr at around 50fps average. this thing blew my mind. we opened it up and he said the sales person said it was water cooled so i was quite curious. turns out there is a quad heatpip from the cpu to a radiator at the back of the case. jeez the thing is nice. oh and he got it for around $1400 @best buy.
