Use resample (with maintain aspect ratio on) opposed to resize.
It makes for a much better pic and it maintains the proper dimesions.

Nice system, almost into the 3K rating.
Try the test with nothing else running and you should break 3K.

unfortunatly my mom won't be getting a comp from your "my pc" tab because she got this 1 for like 2 400 and with the shipping and handeling (aswell as no moniter) it's to pricy for her. but the day i can buy my own computer at my house or sumting (when i move out) i'm gunna call u. she wants good quality for a lower price. i want a nice system but a full non-custom pack is the best i'll get this year

ya, I only have two high end sample systems up so far.
Both can be configured to cost under $2000 with a flatscreen monitor, they just won't be as fast.

With the new "Buy a PC" system I'm working on you'll be able to configure a system costing anywhere from just under $1,000 to over $4,000 for a liquid cooled monster that should put up PC Wiz benchmarks into the 6 to 7000 range.

buy a "Killer NIC" and you'd get mega FPS in games. (the Killer NIC is a network card that reduces your ping and also lowers the load on the cpu a tiny bit because it has 32mb of memory.)

Clean once a year, if you have lotsa carpets or pets clean twice a year.
If you have carpets and pets or other heavy dust spreaders clean 3-4 times a year.
Same cleaning rules applies to other electronics like TV's and stereos.
Thats cheap insurance against fire.

Yep, boatloads of USB for the most part, and the parts list will usually have a link to the part that has a description, my prices just haven't been updated or new stuff added.
If you "strike it rich" let me know, Ill custom you a quote.

gee i sure would love to buy a PC from here! If i remember correctly the final decision is made around new years so i would love that e-mail or phone call!! just out of curiosity will you be adding the 1 terabyte hard drives XD I doubt I'll get one unless there performance is also nice and it isn't just a master of one trade. if i do win i will be ordering just the tower with the hardware and OS installed. i plan to get a blue tooth setup for keyboard and mouse. i also want to go hd and surround for display and video. oh i wonder what f.e.a.r. combat looks like on a vales dream combined with hd and surround... *drools*

if you know what you want i can tell you now a custom pc is a thousand times better than a prebuilt manufactures machine. i just read some of the older post on this thread and i can promise you this you pick out any system form any company and im willing to bet that having kc build you the exact same comp you will save a bundle. and you'd have the opportunity do make any changes you want.
believe me once you have a great comp you will find out while F.E.A.R has good graphics. youll be lookin for games with more.
good enough is never good enough :P
ps.fear looks sweet maxed out at 1680 X 1050 with full surround sound its intense cranked loud.

after all why_not :P
