ok great, then newegg will be a good place to buy parts from..
(you can look for better prices using pricegrabber.com ; the main websites to look at is www.zipzoomfly.com and www.tigerdirect.com )

mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130050

gpu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130017

ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820141225

cpu http://www.newegg.com/product/Produc...82E16819103633

psu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104954

total: $472.42 - $30 mail in rebate = $442.42

+ shipping.

and since you'll be getting these to florida, no tax for you either!

i went slightly over budget.. but its worth it

the reason people are saying dual cores will be cheaper soon because as intel releases their latest cpu code named "conroe" AMD will try to stay competitive by slashing their current cpu prices, and so dual cores will be cheaper. maybe you should wait a bit to see if you can get a dual core for around the same price!

and yes, i play cs 1.6. but i live in canada, don't think we can really compare... i would think our internet connection is very different..

(make sure all hte parts work properly before you take them to the DR )

edit: you also get a free game, farcry! (w/ the cpu)
edit2: with zipzoomfly you get free shipping.. keep that in mind!

****, how did you look all those pieces so fast?...

Well, thanx for all the help, but i'll follow your advice and wait till dual cores become cheaper. After all, i'm not leaving until August.

Again, thx for all help.

Last question: When will "Conroe" be released? because i read somewhere that it would be released in the first days of July and we are already at the 8th.

i'm not sure of the exact date, but initially it was july 27 or something like that, then they moved it forward to july 14 or somewhere around there.. i know it bounced around a few times.. but it should be released very shortly... hopefully in a week or so.
