I do infact have relatives in the states, but they are idiots and we no longer talk to them. Lets just say they aren't nice people lol. I had considered that option though but alas, it is not feasable.
I still think from what I've read, that I'm more than willing to wait a little bit longer to save up and pay that little bit extra to get way more performance though.
