You know the only difference between T1 and A1 is what accessories are included, they are physically the same boards.

Also, please do note that if you are in Canada, you CANNOT buy from newegg.com. Use a Canadian supplier like NCIX.COM instead

@Comp Pro: I have no need for another GPU nor the money for it and doesn't Vista not even support SLI atm? Unless you mean get a better one...

@celegorm: Thanks for pointing out the EVGA GPU. I'll definately get that one.

@esa193: I like the price of that Patriot RAM although it's not as if I have my heart set on any certain kind. I am from Canada so as DJ-CHRIS pointed out I wont be using Newegg to buy (I just find it more convienient). I'll probably end up going for whatever is best value/money.

Thanks for all your replies; they're really helpful to me since I don't know a whole lot about computers.
