no offense but i dont see any bragging right in spending over 1K on a processor that only performs a little bit better then a dual core for less then half its price

He did have an Extreme Kentsfield there so its not that far off pricewise. Do I think its expensive? **** yea, but if he's willing to spend that much why not just grab a Yorkfield

edit: Noticed it was an error

wtf?!?!?! you never got it? i thought you received it and the dvd drive. wow. OK, UPS is ****ing me over. I contacted them 2 weeks ago and they said they shipped it to the wrong place but they would fix it, then, about a week ago they said they got it to the right place. So wtf? If they left it at your door....is it possible a neighbor could have picked it up?
