Alittle iffy....

SysteMax is the house brand for TigerDirect. The problem if there is one is with TigerDirect. Some buyers ahve expressed displeasure with the workarounds TogerDirect offers and/or any rebates, etc.. They simply can't be always trusted though they do sell good systems, its a crap shoot at times, so beware of the service/warranty side of TigerDirect. Others had good experience with TigerDirect, but again others haven't. These issues aren't TigerDirect alone, but it seems I hear thier name come-up now and then often enough. I don't see thier systems as any better than others as they use off the shelf componets. If its the best deal, your choice but check others first.

Do you think you could build your own?

It's not that difficult, and you get much better value for money than buying a Dell or HP.

none of the graphics options are suitable for games

i assume you mean games like oblivion, need for speed, far cry, half life 2, battle for middle earth, etc. if so, the minimum graphics cards you should consider for a new pc are a radeon x1600xt or an nVidia 7600gs.

other suggestions: save $30 and get windows xp media center edition. xp pro offers no real benefits to most consumers. get at least 512MB of ram, a 160gb hard drive, and a dvd burner.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
