    So the mustang is gone, sold her today, for too damn cheap but I needed her gone.
    I also have this laptop that is 3+ years old and I got it when it was on sale at best buy's outlet.


    Going from a Gateway P-7800 FX with
    C2D 2.26ghz
    4gb ram
    17.3 1920X1080 glossy screen
    ~200gb 720gb hdd
    512mb 9800 GTS video card
    has an second HDD slot and never used it
    Paid $1200

    to this:
    MSI barebones:
    15.6" 1920x1080 glossy screen (might be a glossy matte)
    i7 2630QM 2.2ghz
    8gb Kingston hyper-X 1600 ram (room for another 8gb)
    500gb 7200rpm HDD (room for a second HDD)
    1.5gb 570m GTX videocard. It should play 95% of the 2011 releases at high-Max
    2 USB 3.0 ports

    In the future I can add the extra 8gb ram, a SDD hdd for load speeds and I can upgrade to a 580m which is roughly a 35% increase in capability.

    Hoping for it to last me 3-4 years.
    I am also bringing over my old Dell Vostro 1500
    It has a 1.6 C2D and a 256mb videocard. Hell it can play WoW
    But it will be my 100% work computer, so I never have to worry about what is on my laptop when I bring it to school/work

    Also, I kept getting "too long to process" and had to split all of that up, that was a pain in the ass...

    My only gripe is that Diablo will be online only, and I will be in Thailand... can you say LAG?

    Sk1n My pitbull has balls as nice as mine

    Flash! Some say he once threw a microwave oven at a tramp

    How's the build quality on the MSI? Always have wondered about those barebones machines...

    Two hard drive bays would be sweet. I love the 60gb SSD in my laptop, but only have about 10-15gb free most of the time. It'd be awesome to have another bay with a 500gb or 750gb drive in it.
