    Raisn I donít think he was trying to better your suggestion, I took it as he liked the suggestion and recommend getting the middle model.

    Iím really liking the size of the Alienware X51 and am considering the 799.99 model http://www.dell.com/us/p/alienware-x51/fs
    and was ready to order today but since they only have a 21 return policy I will wait closer to Christmas just incase the hubby donít like or want it.


    Again thanks everyone for the suggestions and if anyone seeís a better deal before I order please do share! (:

    why don't you get it ? treat others the way you want to be treated ! it's only after you come out with the weird/mean personality,the other descent personality you have is cool and nobody fires back when you post as a friendly member of the SG community.cat didn't say anything rude or demeaning to you in post # 3,after your post # 4 is when people handed it back to you.

    and I guess you need to be told,
    that post of mine was just sarcasm

    Glad to be back – I can’t believe I first registered in 2001 it does not seem that long ago for sure!

    No worries about the thread - I had forgot how entertaining it could be in here! LOL (;

    I dont think he has lost interest I think he just got tired of fighting with his old pc. So maybe either diablo 3 or maybe Ill ask his friend what fantasy/roll playing game they think he might like.
    If he is into FPS, I have been playing alot of Boarderlands 2. Its easy on the GPU since its all cell shading. It's a nice game to casually pick up and play here and there.

    You said/posted/tweeted/forever incribed? dell.

    I'm with YOSC on this one.

    Xmas PC 4 "Hubby"...

    Want hubby to spend the rest of your years in wholly matrimony?, together? forever?...not a bad thing.

    SG is always a place of ones and zeros.

    Want to get rid of your hubby by buying him the most best PC in the house for Xmas?

    The most can best too do is try and answer the actuall question. Not make emenies, make friends.

    Oh my One.

    Highly recommend this game... PC or Xbox its fun and you/he will have hours and hours of it.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.

    Thanks for all the recommendations! ((: Hope everyoe has a Wonderful Holiday!
