Yeah, the only real reason I made changes was to get it over the $500 point for my Preferred Account's "No interest for 6 months on purchases over $500". Then I realized that I will need a wireless card ... I don't want to be running an ethernet cable through the wall of my apartment or around the ground... that'd be bad. So I kinda wasted the extra money, but I got a larger PSU and a better video card out of the deal


If I was helpful, please click the icon on the left hand side of this message that looks like a check mark Thanks!

Newegg.ca - AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0GHz 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 125W Quad-Core Black Edition Processor - Processors - Desktops

My eyes are fixed on that CPU. Its $350 after shipping and everything. About $50 cheaper when compared to NCIX.

UPS better not **** this up.
