I've paid crap all for my rig, and it does nearly everything I want it to (granted, it still can't do some things like run HL2 and Doom 3)
but I paid around about $225 (au) for the core components

True but can that be over-clocked easily as well on a machine that has lower ram?

They can be overclocked, but other cards can be overclocked ~100MHZ more

newegg takes 2 days to deliver, sometimes 3, depending on where you live

if you live near cali, florida, or new jersey, it should be no more than 2 days

Well I ordered it on the 20th and it'll be here on the 25th.

It always takes 5 days to Texas!

It actually hit forth worth texas 2 days ago but it just sitting there and hasn't moved yet! Boo.

5 days for shipping isn't bad though.

I can't wait for it to come!!! LOL. Next time I may order rush delivery.
