    The PC you got suggested is a very good deal. I'm not trying to push you into anything, but I wouldn't trust anonymous people on the Internet with actual physical hardware at their physical location.

    I put together a sample build from a store. It's not super special, but hey.
    It would be an alternative.

    Nope, they're usually just in the box, so they'd have to open your box etc to do so, which would be a pain.

    you could just sell them on craigslist, or ebay, or donate them, that's what I'd do

    I think he meant to link a custom build he went through for you, however it didn't link properly.

    It's a nice computer though, I'm not sure of the 6850, I don't really bother with them.

    errrm we're getting all mixed up here.

    tetrisgoats system is better than mine.
    the 6850 according to benchmarks is better than the 550ti.

    AMD is going down hill, however their video cards are still on par with those of nvidia.

    AMD makes both CPUs and graphics cards.
    The CPUs are what's quite behind for gaming.

    AMD and Nvidia have historically traded places on who's on top and who's not.

    We-ell. AMD is going better than they have in a long time.
    They are going up and up, and they'll keep doing it. However. They have, stopped being good at making CPUs for niche-fields, such as gaming and workstations. Their CPUs for the every-day user is a lot better than intels. As well as server-grade being alright as well.

    Yes, tetris system will run about 810 after taxes and shipping
    the system i linked will do about 750 or so....

    Yeah, it's better than your system

    CPU/Processors:
    Intel > AMD

    GPU/Graphics Cards:
    nVidia = ATi/AMD (although I believe the GTX 580 edges out the 6970? Been a while since I've seen a bench comparing the two)
    Thanks Soko<3

    If you plan on running everything in Ultra maybe. I built a Phenom X4 965 + 6950 for my son for his birthday and it does just fine in gaming. I have yet to see it drop below 27 FPS in any title we have played together. Thanks to the Black Friday sales I just ordered another AMD based for my 2nd oldest son with a 6870.

    My Black friday find.
    Phenom X4 965 $80
    MSI 970A-G45 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 $60
    GSKILL 8gb DDR3 1600 $25
    Hyper 212+ $15
    HIS 6870 1gb $115 passed on the $89 550TI sale
    Antec 750 Watt PS $65
    .................................
    $360

    Have Case, OS, Keyboard,Mouse, Monitor

    People on this forum get melodramatic, if you can catch the right sales it is well worth it. Most of the time the FPS difference between my AMD and Intel systems are within 12 FPS of each other. My goal was $350, I just barely passed it. If AMD is so terribad then show me a title they wont run right now 0.o

    Yes. Nvidia has the top-dawg at the moment - however, that says nothing of how good the GPUs beneath it are. :P
    Last gen, AMD was in the lead.
    Next gen, who knows? They will continue to trade places.

    The one Tetris came out to 921, as taxes and shipping are expensive, more than I had originally thought.

    The one I linked is about 200 dollars cheaper, without taxes which I can't figure out how to include without actually purchasing it.

    * Mod edit: Embedding images wider than >800 pixels is normally infractible. I'll be nice tonight..
