No nothing yet. They said they are investigating. Paypal unfortunately has a policy of up to thirty days. I will take them to court over this if need be. See what they dont know is I live In New York and they live a few states south. Well I will be moving to a state right next to them less then a month (we have a house there and I'm moving there permanently) and I checked the milage by way of map from them I will be less then 100 miles from them so a court appearence wont be a problem at all. If it comes to that I will take them to court & it will come to that if I dont get my money back. Regardless I will probably by another computer in the next two weeks. I will spend $1,700 maybe more for a good machine. Just need some help with the specs from you guys.

Sounds good. Im not to up to date on computer stuff. I will probably build it myself if I can get some sort of instructions I would like to do that as I like to learn and know how to do things. Nah I'm not into over clocking yet.

judging the specs alone, it looks as though the Radeon X900 will pwn the GeForce 7800, but we wont know until the benchies come out. But looking at the specs, the 7800 looks like a flop compared the X900. That X900 looks grrrreat!!
