Since E2140 and E2160 cost the same, then there is no reason to buy E2140 over E2160

It seems that X1950pro is more expensive than 8800GS on newegg. The cost only $119 after MIR these days, LINK

I see you took of the plain Crucial Ballistix

do you think I should just go with the Tracers then?



you could also add VGA cooling to the HIGH-end budget

Yea...I believe Tracers have the better chips too.

I plan on adding an accessories section later on. Thanks.
