    I'd check out ABS computer technologies at ABS PC's. They've got some nice computers at decent prices. I'm sure you could get a nice gaming system from them for under $1500.

    Just a friendly reminder.

    No internet shopping/selling
    No phone order
    Nothing that has to do with a credit card
    No mail order
    No tv shopping

    I'm sorry but when i get my own money/job then it will be all better...

    The thing is, that its best to shop around. I find it best to buy certain things from certain sites, and other things from others

    Well, obviously you're gonna require a great graphics card. I'd say 256MB RAM is the thing to have now and is included with Radeon 9800s and GeForce FX 5600s. I think a P4 2.8GHz+ will do fine and with possibly 1GB of RAM. An ideal HDD is required for the ever-growing space that games consume and therefore I'd say a 180-200GB HDD will suit you greatly.

    Indeed, but I wouldnt recommeded the 256MB one, unless you just feel like over spending.

    the extra 128 really isnt even used in any of todays games, but I guess Alot of the new ones will start to take advantage of it.

    yea but if your going to invest 1500, your going to want it to last.. def get the 256mb

    www.tigerdirect.com has great specials on graphics cards sometimes.
    no joke i saw a 256 going for 120.
