easy . . . my bank account

well, i'm still collecting some of the parts . . .

most is savings account

but i've been working for my dad the last 2-3 summers, and i get some money for that

but no, i havn't bought ALL the stuff . . .

and instead of getting an fx-53, i may just go for a 3500+ and save the $480.

plus i'm not going to buy the sound card, speakers or dvd burner when i build the machine

for a while, i'm just going to use integrated sound and my old 2.1 speakers for a while, and use the extra cd-rw that we had from an old computer

i'll get the dvd burner about 2 months after the particular model i want comes out, and the sound card/speakers later on, too
