Re: Considering buying a system...
The Timings are CAS5 I believe.
So now I'm looking at...

And I can still get around $60 back in mail-in rebates. Or maybe just $30, I'm not sure if I can do the rebate on both of the memory kits. Anyway, that dropped the price quite a bit. What can I upgrade for better performance? If $1400 is my limit, I may as well get the best I can within it. Oh, also, I've currently got XP and was going to reuse it... But I've heard that DX10 is worth it. I was trying to put off switching to Vista as long as possible, but I think I can put up with it for DX10. Thanks for being patient with me guys.
