Lol. Gotta love the preferred account. I have the same thing so most of my purchases are at least "no payments for 6 months" and anything over $1000 is "no payments for a year." Plus free rush processing is a good bonus.

Yep. Buy now, figure out how to pay for it next year Now i just need to decide if i want to go through with my stepup. Something tells me i'll lose less money on GTX 260s than 9800GTX's.

I need a x38 chipset waterblock. Any suggestions? Thats the only thing i have picked out.

How much are you offering for one of the 9800s. I'm going to have to look up prices for 260s as it will only cost me 150 to stepup to the 260. Something tells me the stepped up 260 card will make me come out ahead compared to selling the 9800. Meh, i'll figure it out later.
