Maybe not, but for many who work on large photos, which is an increasing 
number, it's a huge benefit, providing you've built the box properly 
with video and RAM, etc. There's still the hard core gaming bunch who 
are still building boxes. Some used to buy AlienWare boxes, but since 
Dell bought them out, there aren't any "fast" boxes like there used to 
be, thus more builders. I build simply because I end up with better 
parts, and FAR better box than I can buy and at a much reduced cost.

'Hope you and yours are all doing well.....tried to call you but didn't 
get a call back.
