huh? and? lol. I buy/will be buying new parts when they come out.. because its fun. I enjoy building the system and testing it out. Seeing what the parts can do. and of course.. gaming hardcore ^^ I can also sell off the old parts and only take minimal losses. So even thought its an expensive hobby its cool. Keeping on top of the market isnt much of interest. Wont catch me buying an extreme edition proc lol. Now if I find an insane deal on something you bet your bottom dollar ill grab it if I can lol hate missin out on good deals.

thats just my two cents.

but yeah

^^ Lol, that's what I was thinking. Seriously, it's nice to have a good computer, and it's still cheaper and far better to buy new parts when they come out every now and then, to buy a new factory computer every couple years.
