Good point, thanks. That one is only 30 bucks more, so why not.

So long story short a couple weeks ago my 3 year old (crappy) HP Touchsmart had a major hardware failure. Due to the nature of our jobs, both my wife and I absolutely require a working PC at all times. That day I went looking for a decent pre-built desktop with Windows 7 that I could either pickup on my way home from work or have delivered next day from Amazon. I settled on a Dell Inspiron i3847 with a 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5 processor and 8 GB DDR3 RAM.

I'm going to be adding a second monitor to it this week so I'll need a dedicated graphics card. This thing will primarily be a workhorse, but I'm thinking about sticking EVGA GeForce GTX 750 in there (mainly because it is cheap, and I won't need to upgrade the PSU or anything else with this card). Will this be a decent set-up for me to play a game occasionally without wanting to gouge my eyes out?

Please. This is MarioKart we're talking about here, there's no way you're coming in first every race unless you happen to land in a lobby with 11 3 year olds in it.

Depends, if I'm eating some nasty chain pizza then I'm going for thin crust but if I hit one of the local pizzarias it's NY style pizza (in Florida, lots of trasnplanted New Yorkers here).

Also have any of you had one of these?

Still arguing? It isn't my job to do your research, but you can start with wikipedia and go from there. I refuse to bring myself down to your level and continue this any further. Have a good day.

Yes, one can be born with talent. I could go digging through the internet to show examples of small children playing complicated musical pieces by ear and so forth, but there is no need to.

Having said that, most everyone who becomes great at something does so through hard work, not because they are born with it.

How is small children playing complicated music by ear proof of talent? Any adult can learn how to do that in a handful years. You're most acclimated to learning when you're youngest, so...

Dude, you're arguing for the sake of arguing when there is clear factual scientific evidence to back up what I am saying. The term is prodigy. It doesn't apply to just music.

@IMAHAPYHIPPO: Thanks I didn't have a clue about that. New Super Mario Bros U is in the bundle I got so it will be either Pikmin or Zelda. I already played that Zelda game on the DS a few years back but maybe my son can play it with my help.

The DS games were actually sequels to Wind Waker. Wind Waker is pretty outstanding.

Just go to Clubnintendo.com and do the standard create a user name, then register the code, and you'll get your pick of a free game.

You're right, not sure why I was thinking I played that game on the DS...I did play it on the Game Cube though. I recall it being pretty excellent so maybe it's time for me to pick it up again (and HD is nice).

Yeah I'm open to Wii games too as long as they aren't made redundant by a newer game.
