No, please being patient is the most important things when it comes to Building PC's (which is why I'm good at it not that I'm being cocky)

It just some companies don't honor them

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:

^i dis like MIR's also, with this build alone i had 2 rebates that were not honored with a total of $75 that i did not get back, which really ****ed me off. So try to avoid them as much as possible.

overclocking is not going to yield this tremendous gaming improvement with that rig...it will do fine with no OC.
overclocking is fun, though.
overclocking your gpu may increase your framerates a little.
