Trust me, it's a beautiful place, wouldn't change it for the world, just... don't come here to buy hardware. Or anything technology-related. Or guitars (****ing Epiphone Les Pauls cost around $800). But it's still a beautiful place.

MSI for specialty/overclocked
Evga for step up program
XFX for anything else.

Really, I would go Evga

Agile AL-3000 Gold Top at HomeOld

I'd pick that over a epi ANY DAY. It's same price as a lp-100/standard/studio (may be a bit more), and it's 1000 times better

Meh, the US dollar is turning into crap. Not to mention the huge economy bomb that just hit us lol... Did you know the Gov't is planning to send out $600 to every person who's paid income tax around may? Just to try to "help" the economy back up... lol
