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.

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.
