Best Buy is more expensive by far. They don't have 'trained' anything there. $84 bucks just to reformat your drive, jesus man what a ripoff, and beyond that you go back and pay MORE money when they technically didn't even fix it in the first place? Demand your money back when you go back in there if it still fux up. Don't ever take it to Best Buy unless you just want to get rid of some money. I still want to know what kind of computer it was though. Did you buy it through Dell, HP, PeoplePC any company like that or was it built for you or what?

Ahhh yes. Well.....read up on building computers, doesn't take too much and try to build your future computers. Buying from companies is just asking for crap :/ Anyway. Refer to your other thread where I suggested that motherboard. That will work with the processor that you have now, unless you want to change out your processor to. 35w 2400+ XP-M and 2500+ XP are the best chips for OC'ing, but I don't think you're ready to dive into the depths of possible computer frying

Yeah that'd be the best idea. throw a fit and just tell those *******s $84 was ridiculous to simply format your drive, you could have down that yourself (this is what you're saying to them ) Beyond that, it didn't fix the problem and I had to return it to pay MORE money for your useless team of 'techies' Something to that effect. I'm sure you might be able to get something from them. Just hassle the hell out of them until theyd rather throw money at you than listen to you another day

Sounds like your power supply. Best buy? Why the hell would you take it there for? I actually had a "Tech" there tell me that Dimms needed to be installed a pairs. And he started writing down a price of $300 just for a extra stick and DX, plus cable rewiring. I just told him that i wasn't going to waste my friends money (I took his computer in, i could of fixed it for much cheaper but hes a paranoid type) on something that didn't pertian to the problem.

God why do they let idiots work there.
