lol yea im in college, trying to get smart enough to get a good job.... no though i dont have lots of money lol thats why im not buying whats out now, that and theres the new stuff comin out. i like high technology in general, even though im looking into programming as a career at the moment. building a computer from scratch is a somewhat new experience for me and i like it. however, yeah i am anxious to build a damn good computer even if its potential far surpasses what i need.

yeah that makes sense. back to cpu's again though lol. i mentioned this part before though, since intel has it where you can get hte 800fsb is it better to go with intel or is amd's 64 bit cpu better
