How about I donate it to the "Get ShoobieRat Laid" Diamond Ring for His GF Fund, instead?
Ya need a new GF if you gotta give a diamond ring just to get laid. Harsh

Yeah that commercial 'Diamonds are forever' only apply in a womans head. Chances are whatever dream computer I would build would last longer than the relationship :P

"I don't own credit cards They are evil"

True. Very true.

"Chances are whatever dream computer I would build would last longer than the relationship :P"

That's pretty much me as well. Technology before emotions. =)

Well I see girls over computers, or maybe just girls on my computer.

Every once in a while it's a good idea to show them sparkly things...

If you had a good GF, you'd understand.

Giving your GF a diamond as a present is a hell of a lot better (and less painful) than giving her a glow-in-the-dark power supply...

Something is STILL going on with NewEgg...

Products (identical listings) are showing up "sold out" in some sections, but "in stock" in others.

Also, the one-day-sale on the 6800GT is a dollar MORE than the normal price!...

I'm pretty nervous now about ordering from the site if it's screwed up. Who knows what I'm actually throwing money at!

Dear Shoobie Rat,

The reason for identical listings showing different availabilities is due to database synchronization. Our SSL server gets synched a bit faster than WWW, so the most up-to-date availability is shown in the shopping cart and other SSL areas of our site. Please note that the latency is usually miminal, so you shouldn't experience this phenomenon very often.

Best regards,
Newegg.com Webmaster
