Nice specs. How many bits is your graphics card? Also, which store did you buy the computer from?

Really? And you called me out on using a 5400RPM hard drive in laptop?

Bits of memory interaction. More bits, faster interaction with the GPU, more data throughput. That's important for gaming.

It's either 192 or 256 bit.

Some of them come in 128-bit. You're right, tho, it's probably 256-bit.

Actually it has to be 256, all the 670s are listed as such.

I discuss it every time I recommend a graphics card to someone. It makes a difference.
