That's actually a really good deal. It's refurbished but still good price. Do you have any more of the coupon codes or?

Dell often release the coupon, (typically at least once a month, none available now) you just have to monitor their outlet closely because the good system are snatch up in seconds. Dell refurb are awesome because they also have one year warranty, same as you purchase new. I'm done with custom builts, it doesn't even save me money like 10 years ago.

What do you recommend for monitors? How important is response time? And is 27 too big for a normal desk?

I've never noticed a big difference between 2 or 5ms and I'm a big gamer. Asus is a good brand for value but you can also find good monitors from Acer and Samsung at solid pricepoints. I use a 27" with two 24" on the sides. Anything bigger would bug me on my desk. I hooked up an old 32" 1080p tv once and I didn't care for it at all.

get one from a boutique custom pc vendor if you have the cash and have no idea how to build one. for that budget, you could get the latest i7 ivy bridge processor, 2 x GTX 680s in SLI, a dual 1080p monitor setup (or a single bigger 3D monitor) and 16G worth of ram, 256g SSD and an 800 watt - 1000watt power supply.

It should run 2k13 smoothly

NBA 2K12 Recommended System Requirements :

CPU: 3 GHz Dual Core processor or equivalent

RAM: 2 GB

GFX: Nvidia Geforce 7900 GT / AMD equivilant

GFX RAM: 512MB with Shader Model 3.0 support


that one is ahead in every category of the 2k12 pc requirements

Thanks man, but that's not a laptop.

It's much better if you build your own computer. I build myself a computer last year and upgraded the graphic card and power supply this year. I also built my Dad a computer. It's actually not hard at all. I play NBA2k12 on my computer. Not a monster computer, but can play all of the recent games. Cost less than $1,000.
