You do not have to be as long winded as me. What is your current setup? What are your short term plans for upgrading? I usually stay a little behind the times because of money but as long as I can play pretty recent PC games I am okay. I also usually build my own boxes but this last time I bought an off the shelf Dell. This just reinforced my loathing of Dell's customer service/tech support. I prefer HP OTS but the computers themselves are comparable to Dell. Its the service from Dell that really sux. ANYWAY Right now I have an i3 Dual Core Intel 3.1Ghz (another thing I despise is Intel). I would have rather gotten an AMD but I was using my credit card and yadda yadda yadda. There is Hyperthreading with the Intel of course. I have used AMD so long that I was not aware that Hyper threaded CPUs show up as two CPUs and a dual core shows up as 4 CPUs in Task Manager, DXDIAG, System info, etc. I have 6 gigs of RAM (only upgradable to 8 gigs but at DDR3 PC3-12800 that is not too bad). I have a 1 terabyte 7400 RPM HD. Would love to go with an Solid State Drive (SSD). Of course if I had my pick I would get the $3000+ OCZ 1 terabyte SSD but I may settle for one just big enough for my operating system and slave a regular SATA for the data files. AMD Radeon HD 6450 (Engineering Sample) 1024Mb - This is the lowest card in the 6000 series but it is discrete and beat the onboard video I would have been stuck with. Would love to get a couple of dual cards for about 8 Gigs of video RAM. So again Intel i3 Dual Core 3.1Ghz with Hyperthreading.
