Everything seems pretty good. Some people are telling me that the new 9 series vid card is coming out, so if you're in no rush to get the computer I suggest waiting.

I'm getting eVGA (by chance) so I have that 90 day step up program if needed...I think.

That lists looks pretty good. Why Mushkin though? Not saying they're bad, but there are better brands out there, for the money. Like Crucial or G. Skill.

Crucial is too expensive in Canada, and G.Skill isn't sold near my local stores.
