Just found this one guy's thread from HL2Files. instantly after reading his post i couldn't stop laughing. he paid WAY too much for his computer for what he wants to do with it (granted he bought it to play HL2, but he STILL payed way too damn much). Anyway, this is the thread for people who spent WAY too much money for a PC they could have built for themselves for cheaper. http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=137156 P.S. here's one thing the guy posted after someone else commented. heh. can get pretty damn close to their specs, run HL2 as good as a rather cheap computer, and still pay a whole lot less than he did.
