Haha, yeah. I do well with juggling around money. I get it from my dad. I'm not some almost 19 year old kid who dumps his savings into his computer. I would dump all of my money into this rig IF I still had a job.

Welcome to my life.
I never spent more than $100 on most of my system. The only part in my rig that went over $100 was my 8800GT ($150), not including any shipping/taxes. So my build is a budget build, pretty kick ass budget build if I do say so myself.

It's pretty nice. I'm always tempted to get something new. But, if I'm sure I want to, I wait a week and see how I can get it if I move some stuff around. I personally spend the extra money for comfort. I'd rather spend $1500 on a rig now and have it last me 3 years. I'd rather not build a $500 computer every year. My i7 chip is so fast, I finished all of the editing I needed to in 2 weeks. It took me over 2 weeks to do 75% of the stuff on my Q6600. Now I have nothing to do with it, haha.

You really need to move up to water cooling. I hope I hit 3.6 without too many problems. I hope my heatsink can handle it.
