Wow that looks great. Finally got back up and running. The wire management in mine looks like a rats nest, but its only until i get my 780i.

LOL...

For the most part yes. BUT in some cases, if i had a house and could have gotten in on a 2-3% arm and saved 200-300 a month that i could have invested in the mutual fund i have my money in right now, i could have made a ton of cash and when the arm went back up, just refinance for a fixed. But most people dont have the braincells to do that sort of thing.

exactly. most would, as you said, spend it on frivilous pursuits.
lol like computer parts.
but really, investing the savings would be totally acceptable versus buying a new escalade. on 20's.
LMAO.

In theory, i havent actually lost any money on computer parts. Well no more than i would have wasted on booze or other useless toys. I figure 100 bucks a month on computer parts averaged out over a year is fine. As long as you upgrade and sell your parts before they become obsolete you dont lose much on them.
