Heh yeah. Just did the calculations and such and figured it out. Thank you.

Another Question: Are there any advantages to waiting a few weeks/months? Will newer better parts be available? or may prices drop on certain items?

if you wait until Q1 2008, you'll see many price drops on CPU's because of the new AMD Phenom and the new line of intels

Every month new stuff comes out. Right now there isn't any huge break throughs other then some new amd cpu's. But I think for your budget a core 2 duo would be a better buy.


XP Pro | Vista Home Premium | Linux Ubuntu 7.10
s939 X2 3800 Toledo @ 2.6ghz | evga 7900gs | 320gig + 80gig wd | 1gb Ram | Abit KN8 SLI
3.1ghz achieved. :cool:
