OS: Windows 7 Home Premium

CPU: Intel Core i7 950 Processor BX80601950 - 3.06GHz, 8MB L3 Cache, 4.8GT/s QPI, HyperThreading, Quad Core, Bloomfield, LGA 1366, Retail, Fan

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 285 Video Card - 1GB GDDR3, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV

RAM:OCZ Gold Tri Channel 6GB PC12800 DDR3 Memory - 1600MHz, 6144MB (3 x 2048)

Mobo: Asus P6T Motherboard - LGA 1366, Intel X58, SATA, SLI Ready, CrossFireX Ready, Triple Channel DDR3 support, RAID, Hyperthreading support

No clue what to call this, power?
OCZ StealthXStream 700-Watt Power Supply - ATX, 120mm Fan, SLI-Ready, SATA-Ready, PCI-Express

Case: Cooler Master RC-600-KKN1-GP Gladiator 600 Mid Tower Case - ATX, mATX, (May have been a bad choice)

1TB HDD, Blu Ray Burner, extra fan

Total: 3,110.65 CAD

What I originally wanted and it is subpar to:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5395908&CatId=1886
It was an online only purchase, and it's price after taxes was around the 3192.24, with shipping 3566.35

Could have bought it cheaper from cyberpower's own site, but they don't ship outside states.

So Since I'm not actually building this but tiger-direct is, was I ripped off? My gramp's comp crashed, so It was a rushed replace my comp so he can have my comp....
I'm a software junkie, I know next to nothing about hardware components besides CPU and GPU

Also It was like an extra 2 thousand ontop of that to have a quad core system with a Quadro FX card to run AVID Media Composer software from DELL.... Editing is expensive as hell

you will find you wont be able to play on most ut99 servers , the 64 bit windows 7 doesnt work with the utdc, you can play on any server that doesnt have the anti cheat on...but everything else will just crash. Even some of the MH maps crash on mine. And as far as I have read they dont plan on supporting windows 7 with the utdc, but who knows...stranger things have happened.

I dont really touch UT that much anymore.. I'd be a sad panda for not having the option of it but As long as I can still play UT2k4, or UT3 I'll be ok.

You can dual boot it, but if you want XP on it you will need a win7 DVD to repair the boot sector after xp install, if you go with 32 bit vista or 32bit win7 you wont need to repair boot sector.

Does it come with a win7 cd/dvd??

I see alot of adds where they throw in a winxp cd incase you want to dual boot. Dual boot is getting very popular now with the 64 bit os's.

BTW nice system, a bit on the high end but nice.
