nah...my bet he is just another kid coming on the forum spewing his "$5000 gaming computer" bs even though we all know(including the poster) that it'll never happen :| lol

anyway..the point is : don't plan far ahead. Fed 2008 i thought about spending $500 on a barebone kit....last month I dropped $1500 to finish my I7 build. Moral of the story ...things change :P
