    I have a custom built PC..

    Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 at 3ghz
    Corsair 4GB 2x2 DDR2 800mhz Dual Channel Ram
    Gigabyte Geforce 8800 GT 512MB graphics card
    Asus DVD-Rom Drive
    WD Caviar 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3
    Gigabyte Intel G31 Micro ATX Motherboard
    OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W Power Supply SLI and Crossfire ready
    Windows XP SP3, all drivers will be pre-installed
    Motherboard and powersupply box, and CD's will be included.

    At the time this computer was built(4 months ago), it costed me over a grand to custom build. Everything is in perfect running condition and can be reformatted if you like. Windows XP is currently installed. The computer case has a swinging door that was broken off by my little sister. Pictures of the case coming up soon. I am trading mainly because I don't have time to play games anymore. This computer is powerful enough to play 95% of the games out today on high settings, along with using photo editing software such as Photoshop or Lightroom.

    I am looking to trade the computer for a Dell brand Vostro or similar computers. At minimum, I will require an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 3-4 GB ram, and a 7200rpm hard drive anything higher than 100GB. . Mainly looking for something cheaper + cash. I will also accept an iphone as part of the payment as long as it's 100% fully functional. I don't need a computer with a high powered graphics card, or power supply like mine.

    Or will sell at around $1000 obo. If comparing this computer to similar computers such as Dell's XPS 625 with same processor, memory, hard drive, video card specs, , it'll total out to over $1300 easily. I chose nothing but the best parts and put countless hours researching these products put into this PC.

    It is currently in a HP Pavilian case, but also included is a XION II Black Case with clear glass and green light, not the most beautiful case, but I chose this mainly because of the extra side fan. I aimed towards functionality before cosmetics.
    The case is in perfect working condition, I just removed it because it was too loud for me. (there is 3 large fans)

    i'm located in souuh san francisco.

    You can buy a BRAND NEW P-7805 w/ 2.33 c2d, 9800m GTS, 4G ram, full 17'' monitor for 1300... Or you can get the 7808 (I believe) with a 2.0 Quad core w/ the rest of hte specs the same for like 1800. You have a really big budget for the parts you labeled >_<
    (You can always buy a 2.8GHz processor from ebay and put it in yourself with the 7805 for a less then 2k total overall.)

    fill out the FAQ please.

    here are my current "bang for the buck" high-end 3D/gaming notebook picks....
    (with 256-bit memory interface videocards)

    For 17"+
    *(sub-$1500 budget)*
    - Gateway P FX .... with 9800M GTS is another good choice but does not have better build quality than other some other alternatives
    - MSI GT725 .... fully loaded 17" with ATI HD 4850
    *($1600 to $2000)*
    - Clevo M570ETU (aka. Sager NP5797) .... new model with Montevina, quad-core and choice of GTX 280M or 9800M GTS/GT/GTX or Quadro 2700M
    - ASUS G71G-Q2 .... the Q2 makes the list since its fully loaded with Nvidia 9800M GS, Q9000 quad-core CPU, and Blu-ray drive
    - Arima W840 DI (aka. OCZ Whitebook, Alîenware m17, etc...) .... new 17" dual ATI 3870, quad-core and dual HDD
    *($2000+ budget)*
    - Clevo M980NU (aka. Sager NP9850) ..... new 18.4" with mobile Intel quad-core CPU and dual Nvidia GTX 280M (in SLI)
    - ASUS W90Vp .... 18.4" fully loaded with ATI HD 4870 X2 .... make sure to get a quad-core to make it worth it
    - Clevo D901C (aka. Sager NP9262) .... 17" with single/dual 9800M GTS/GT/GTX or Quadro 2700M/3700M, uses desktop quad-core CPUs, three internal HDDs, and the best notebook cooling design.
    - Clevo D900F/D901F (aka. Sager NP9280) .... new 17" with Intel Core i7 support, Nvidia GTX 280M (or new Quadro), three internal HDDs, and the best notebook cooling design like its predecessor.


    For 15"
    *(sub-$1400 budget)*
    - ASUS G50VT .... 15.6" with 9800M GS (budget high-end card)
    - MSI GT627 .... 15.4" with 9800M GS (budget high-end card)
    ..... and the rest of the mid-range notebooks with Nvidia 9600M/9650M, ATI 3600/3650, etc..
    *($1400+ budget)*
    - Clevo M860ETU (aka. Sager NP8662) .... fastest 15.4" gaming notebook with Centrino 2 quad-core CPU support... and Nvidia 9800M GTS / GTX 260M / Quadro 2700M

    Alîenware (except for M17 which is re-branded Arima W840) and .Dell does not make the list (mainly for the high-end systems), they are quite outdated and configuration upgrades are usually overpriced.

    This is a bang for the buck list... if you want to pay for aesthetics and lights, then look elsewhere.

    * please read the Clevo Guide for further information about Clevo and their international vendors.

    but jeez you should really just get a new clevo with a 280 gtx
