Re: Trading Old Rig for..

I think those are the things he wants for his PC. Either 2x 1024 MB sticks of PC-5300 DDR2 RAM, or a fairly new video card.

Re: $20 for 2GB of XMS2 CAS4

With that line, I doubt you'll be able to get both $40 rebates...and if you want more then one, you'll have to purchase it 14 times over. Funny, nonetheless. :rolleyes:

Re: Do Winamp's ads bother you? Nix'em.

Re: Do Winamp's ads bother you? Nix'em.

Do Winamp's ads bother you? Nix'em.
