Holy Crap.

If I were in the market for a new box, I would buy the Pellymobile in an instant...

F-WORD! :eek:

That's a sweet price on a humdinger of a sweet rig, and I got the damndest feeling it's put together well and tweaked to pretty much perfection. :cool:

I wish I had a few grand to blow right now, I really do. :(

Some things have long stopped being surprising.

Anyway, I should let this get on topic. If you're in the market for a computer and you're reading this, are you MAD?! Run your email client already.

Out of curiousity since I've always wondered, how well do games play on that 20" LCD as compared to a CRT? Is there any lag or ghosting? (I'm getting the LCD bug... :rolleyes: )

BTW-If you're looking for a system and you can afford this one, GET IT!!!! You'd pay at least 2-3 times that to get a comparable system anywhere else, if you could only find one as good! (pimp)

BTW2-Congrats on the upcoming nuptials Pelly, marriage is a beautiful thing and I ain't never known as much happiness in me life until I got married.

Best of luck and all the happiness in the world to you and yours! :D

Thanks for the well wishes man!

As for gaming on the 20" LCD, there is nothing like it...No ghosting and beautiful, rich colors...This thing is incredible...I'll be buying another down the road once all the bills are paid off and I am back in the black again! :D

Ok...I must be crazy...If you cosnider the LCD alone is roughly $1,000...you're getting a system with a GeForce FX 5900, 1GB of PC4000, and a DVD Burner for $999!

I would have killed to have found a deal like this when I was buying a computer! :eek:

Indeed, please don't tell me someone hasn't snatched this up yet! Can I spread the word about it to a few people?

Just wanted to back him up on this. I have the exact same display and am VERY please with it. While my old GDM-F500R CRT was excellent, when it comes to price vs. performance that LCD is a GREAT buy.

I notice very little ghosting with mine. A slight motion blur at times, but it's VERY hard to see and IMHO you have to be looking for it to notice it.
