If I had known how wonderful this computer would be

Summary: This is the fastest computer I have ever owned! :) It is noticeably faster than my iMac which cost almost twice as much money and is supposed to have comparable specs. If I had known how wonderful this computer would be, I would have passed on the iMac which should perhaps be called iSpentTooMuch.
Summary: This machine is a beast in a good way. It has only been 24 hours so i haven't really gotten in many games yet. So far i tried Need for Speed and it works great on the highest settings. I like that it can be upgraded as well for the real computer buffs. In short I am pleased with this desktop. My last desktop was from Walmart and not meant for playing games. I am enthusiastic to see what other games i can throw at it. wow my first core i7. Cheers.
Summary: I needed a number crunching machine for work at home and this computer has met my needs. Oddly the most computationally intensive thing I done so far is rendering HD video after editing. The rendering process pegs all eight processors, but I get close to a one to one timing; that is one minute to render/produce for one minute of video. I am reasonably tech savvy and setup of computer went smoothly.
Summary: I have not challenged this computer with video games. It came with almost no software to junk it up, which was what I wanted. It is much more computer than I need. It is blazingly fast, and I am happy to trade portability for ability. I love this computer.
