Pretty-good comparison and argument why you should build your own PC, if you can.
Good news for consumers, this is more evidence that larger brand-names are "getting it" more and more when it comes to actual REAL Gaming PCs, but that comes at a cost to your local boutique system-builder in your neighborhood, who probably doesn't have the "advertising presence" that HP has. (Although, word-of-mouth can be pretty powerful too.)Here's something I saw on Tom's yesterday where HP is using some better components in some of their gaming series, and that they use non-proprietary parts. Heck, in their larger option they now even include a front intake fan!
