    And how do you know that is a prebuilt?

    And regardless of whether or not it's a prebuilt, he can still set it up for dual channel.

    Because it's not dual channel. Don't ask me how or why... but it doesn't work when I put it in dual channel, at least I think. Now that you mention it, I probably should try it. Although I seem to remember it not working, I'll give it a shot anywho.

    Also, this computer WAS an iBuypower prebuilt. Since then, I've rebuilt the thing from top to bottom. So in a sense I built it with a case sent via iBuypower. That's part of the reason it's for sale. I want to actually 100% build my own PC. It runs great and everything... I just want a new one :D

    Edited:

    Also, it LOOKS like a prebuilt still because that case doesn't have any cable management capability aside from empty drive bays. Yuck.

    I know it's messy, I might do some cable management this weekend if I can convince myself it's worth it.

    specs:

    intel q8400 (yeah I know. lets just say I was stupid and impatient)
    4gb ddr2 @ 1066mhz
    ati radeon HD 4850
    asus p5q-se2
    two hdd's totaling 1.14 tb.

    might sell this to get money for my next build.

    Oh, forgot specs.

    The laptop is 1.7 Ghz single core, 1 GB ram, and that's all you need to know.

    From my previous setup of Antec P190 to this. Don't you just love uni!

    I'm buying one of these bad boys though when they're out on the 22nd:



    I'm getting the version with the discrete graphics, proper cpu, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD, blu ray etc.

    It's also a touchscreen monitor, has HDMI input, displays full 1080p and has a built in TV tuner.

    Wow that looks kickass, just wondering why are you choosing touchscreen, will you be using it for software for photoshop/3ds max/sony vegas or just for the hell of it?

    lol, It's just the result of careful planning and successful choices in the design of the office. Anyways I've got nothing to post here since this post your computer, not post your desk and my tower isn't worth photographing since it's facing the wall.

    Not anymore, Me and my girlfriend played the new L4D campaign last night but besides that I haven't touched a game in about two weeks, and that was just a LAN game of Age of Empires III with the girlfriend. I'm to much engrossed into my 3D work that games just don't satisfy my time anymore. My next computer will be a workstation, I'm keeping my eyes out for a Quadro FX4800 that is reasonable.

    I've found that making money is just so much more enjoyable than playing games, it's nice to love what you do.

    The last bit I agree with, but I just don't see how it can be fun making 3D models, but maybe that's because I suck really really bad at 3D modelling.
