I don't know the details on the Athlon. I'll call the guy tomorrow to ask for further details. In the meantime, if anyone can point me in the right direction of good deals, that'd greatly be appreciated.
Basically, for graduation, my parents are willing to put out 500 for me, and I have to cover the rest. -__- They're cheapos.
