My System Specs

Yeah, I'm still quite pleased with it. :)

The only issues I can come up with is the lack of multimedia buttons, and the fact that it doesn't play nice with PS2 adapters but that doesn't seem to be an issue with recent (at least 2 years) bios'.

Can be hard to find as well.... if you're interested in one, let me know I'll put you in touch with my local dealer...... :)

Ok, I definitely will not go for the G15, could go for that one or maybe the Saitek Eclipse Keyboard for $60...

actually i use vista 32bit and i routinely hit 70% or so of my 3326mb that it recognizes...

Hey dude, im a newby to computer so i cant offer much help, but heres what I got. For the keyboard, as said before, dont go with that combo. I have the G5 and the G15 and love it. I can see why people dont like the G15 though, seeing as it has so many functions. If you dont mind paying quite bit, i would say the diNovo Edge, or the Enermax said above. You can also get the graphics card cheaper for around 380, or 400 Superclocked. Ill give you the links when i get home.

Hope this helos

i would actually buy now and avoid the 1333fsb cpus. yes the G0 steppings are looking good but you'll need a much better motherboard to hit those higher fsbs that will be necessary to max out the cpus.

oh and the rough equivalent will be an e6550 running at 333x7.

now quad core is a different story. with the q6600 dropping to 266usd you're really not that far off when you convert that to cdn. that's my plan anyway.
