Yeah, I had a hard time understanding that post too, velocity-spaz. lol

But back on topic, will I save alot of money if I build my new computer myself or should I just buy it already assembled from somewhere?

You will save around 100-1000 depending on who you buy it from and how expensive the parts are.

Also, velocity, you wasted alot of money on those 512 mb ultras for no reason. You will see no difference in performance on games right now, and in the future, there are going to be better video cards that will pwn the 6800.
