    Ok, let's start off slow:
    Desktop or Laptop? Portable could be a small case, like falcon northwestern's fragbox.
    How much can you afford
    Can you build it yourself.

    Thanks for your prompt reply. I was looking at the shuttle cases and I likes that size. I need to know what type of graphics card will fit in a computer that small. my budget is about $1500. I'd rather not build it myself as i'd like to call tech support when I need help.

    Three people answered my question. Of those three people you were the least helpful. Help like yours is fruitless and therefore deemed unnescessary. I realize that this is the CS forum and I didn't know where to turn to--try to be more helpful in the future. Thank you.

    Building a PC yourelf is always better, that way everything is just the way you want it, and also you can always open it up for whatever reason.

    All of the vid card will probably fit. The issue is in my opinion, the power source.
    let me give you an example of the type of case:

    I guess this is what he's talking about
    Anyway, a $1500 budget is more than fine for a decent new PC. I still haven't reached that much money w/ mine and I'm doing fine.I'm probaly dropping a couple of grand on extra stuff in the near future, though.

    Hey look! He must have found a dictionary. You call what you just posted useful? You're a noob, stop acting like one and maybe you deserve a cookie. Otherwise, GTFO.

    Looks like that place only deals with barebones and pre-mades.
    If you end up getting one.. get one with the AMD64 bit cpu.. 3400+ and above if it were me
    I'm pretty sure most graphic cards will fit in that case.. so ill start at the top and work my way down
    ATI X850 (best card)
    Nvidia 6800ultra (next best)
    ATI X800
    nvidia 6800GT
    nv 6600gt/x700
    Of And you can get away with 300. 250 W powersupplies because of the Small Form Factor.

    Oh, and Eraser. don't post ever again till ur through with ur little emo episode
