    Ok trick question as I rarely watch tv , I was thinking of this setup with my Xmas bonus . Nice case , mobo . seems like a high end vid card was wondering what you people thought ?


    Link : http://www.alinx.ca/flyer.asp

    Its the p4 super plus one , thought it was everything I would need for a year or two . I hav' nt had a new computer for a few years , I always updated or piece mealed my setup up .


    Just thought I'd ask here as hav'nt yet decided .

    Here's a different option but don't need the monitor ...... Slaco only cuts 150 '00 bucks sans monitor off tho thought what a plick .



    It was the Soleria - 8295 .

    They don't Clocker , unless you have a key then pick your poison . I would install XP Pro Black as I know that well . I thought about Vista or XP 64 bit but probably just XP Pro .


    Clocker some stores offer a partition with shit programs or your own disk you provide as you know . I'v had a few white box stores that for warranty purposes I have to give them a key so "they" install but most will just take a Corp. key . I then take it home and format .........

    The link's in question will just give you the parts and you build yourself if so desired , I just never saw much of an advantage in price to do it . You know knock a couple of hundred bucks and maybe you have a deal . I'm still amazed at the low cost these days and why build yourself when the deals are there .


    Clocker add $ 150 .00 CND for Vista Ultimate CD , I phoned just to see and asked if I got a cd to keep . Not that I would need it but some would . I'm assuming its a OME license ?

    You could always use one of the many vista releases on the net and do it up with "Vista Loader" which is a bios patch and has nothing to do with drivers like the "PATHEON" crack.

    although TV have longer 'moral' age
    right now there is still a fight between LCD and plasma and evolution is at high pace right now

    buy a computer and next time situation with TVs will be more clean
    thats my advice
