The 3000+ combo, you can EASILY o/c the 300+ to the speed of the 3500+ on stock cooling, and it saves you $100

edit:
and is this the PC you are settling on? a real shame you couldn't get the parts from newegg, as with your budget, you could have gotten a MONSTER KILLER gaming pc, complete with the512mb 7800gtx and dual core athlon 64 4400+.

no, I am talking about the 512mb 7800gtx video card. it is a 24 pipe card with 580/1750 clock speeds. it is currently the absolute best gaming card you can get at the moment, and it sells for $750 on newegg, and you would have been able to get it had you gotten your stuff of newegg... also... lol the system I made for you had 2gb of ram, not 1gb... make sure you at least get a 7800gt or x1800xl video card for your new pc

Why don't you show THAT to whoever you want to borrow the credit card from.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong .. the whole Fatal1ty thing seems like a marketing ploy .. is there any advantage to buying Fatal1ty stuff? Just seems like an excuse to mark it up.
