hey all S! my system is pretty messed up & i.ve taken it in a few times to get fixed & it's not much better. i was wanting to wait till SOW was out before i bought a new rig but i'm running out of patience. do you think a rig like this will be good enough for the long forseeable future? does anybody have any suggestions on who i should bye from. i need to bye from someone that will give good support. building my own is not an option for me! any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

How about you tell us what rig you have now so maybe someone can help you fix that before you go spend $4000 on something that might not even be able to run SOW.

i guess you guys didn't read the part about i took my rig in to get checked out!! it's not worth putting any money into this one! it has nothing to do with settings!! i've moved on now! i only want to know if a rig like the one by Digital Storm is upgradable. i've heard by a few people that what's out now is upgradable & there's not much in the way of new technology in the near future. just want to know if anyone's heard otherwise! thanks formthe replies. S!

Good enough for the forseeable future? Yes. Ugradable? According to the specs, yes.

I would research the heck out of that system and any other system you may come across.

I would check out(example:Google) the motherboard, ram, video card, power supply, etc., of that system and see what the general consensus is.

When you've got enough info on the parts then research the vendors.

Using that knowledge along with any suggestions by the group here will net you a rig you will be satisfied with.

A couple of reputable merchants that I have done business with are:

Hope this helps in getting you started.

Certainly it's upgradeable. You can always pop in another $1600 worth of video cards next year or year after. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif As far as the near future, of course there's new and better stuff coming out silly. I would at least hold off until November and take a look at Yorkfield QX9650 (http://enthusiast.hardocp.com/article.html?art=MTQxMSwxLCxoZW50aHVzaWFzdA==). These Quad Core parts are putting AMD to shame at the moment.
