my computer knowledge isn't quite enough for me to know how to build one myself, I'm relatively new to the whole computer gaming scene so I'm still trying to get a grasp of everything

this laptop is on sale so I'm kind of interested in it, opinion?

NCIX.com - Buy MSI GX640-260US Intel Core i5 450M 4GB 500GB 15.4IN WSXGA+ Radeon HD5850 Windows 7 Premium Notebook - MSI/MicroStar - GX640-260US - in Canada

900 bones is not a bad deal :)

i would still build a desktop or pay a store 50 bucks to do it for me.
sometimes you can negotiate that too :)

AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition Processor hows the processor?
Dual MSI GeForce GTS 450 1GB

more wondering about the graphics cards are they better then a Radeon HD 6850 1GB ?
