    XD 24 GB ram
    most people use those for simulations (plane).

    or programs in animating or video editing, or even medical

    Seriously though, 24GB of RAM is overkill for gaming and is a complete waste of money.

    The video card is not the best. It will play all games, but it won't run Crysis 2 on highest settings smoothly. If the money for the RAM ran towards a GTX590 or a Radeon 6970, it would've been a lot better for gaming.

    It's also too bad you paid for previous generation i7 when sandy bridge came out and it performs much better with less price. (Not that you need it for current games)

    The RAM is a waste of money. Literally, over half of it will not be used.

    Get them to cut back on the RAM and stick a better video card in it, like Westside said.

    Trade all that other nonsense for the best graphics card you can buy.
    (well, come to think of it, the ss drive sounds kinda nice too [​IMG] )

    Cut the RAM down to the half, add a newer sandy bridge processor and increase the SSD capacity to 120GB. 60GB will barely be enough for the x64 OS and the essential programs. You need more space for larger size games. Also, the more free space you have the better the performance. (not sure of the last one)

    The last one's not true once you get beyond ~15% free space (where the OS can operate naturally).
