isn't that asking if it was a good idea AFTER you've already shot your toe off with a gun? biggrin.gif

Looks like a decent prebuilt pc. Too bad you don't have the time to build your own as you have already talked about modding the prebuilt one.

I could only find that GTX-970 for a good price. Everything else was way overpriced.

It's never to late to change my order😄 I am going to be getting back surgery, so I will be off work for over a month. Nothing but time now.
