Default Re: upgrades!

i had that Xion case, and i didnt like it, it was kinda small, flimsy, and i felt like it would fall over if i just barely bump. I tried taking off one side and a corner bent pretty easily.

And, when you open the cd drive, the little plastic part that comes out gets in the way and its tricky to close the drive.

For around that price, I would go with this case:


And why are you against Intel? The Core 2 Duo's are better than AMD Athlon's whichever way you look at it.

core 2 duo's blow AMD away in benchmarks and are also a far better value. I'd go with that. Also, they support 64-bit and almost all processors do now the only ones I know of that don't are celerons which are pretty much dead as far as I know.
