Buy at newegg next time. You can get a 80gb for the price of that 40gb and you can get 512mb of ram for about $70.

Yes, I would attest to Newegg. The 40GB on their site would probably run $35-$40. 80GB being $55-$60. 512mb for $70? He says he's using PQI. I bought my 512 of PQI for $45.95 on Newegg. Definitely check that out if you're going to buy more parts.

Newegg has the Athlon 3000+ with cooling for $146. Tough break man, seems you shopped at the wrong place.

Do you have any friends/other people you know that could buy online for you?
