That sounds good. I have $200 and no plans on what to do with it. If a nice deal pops up tomorrow I'll probably pick something up too.

Microcenter might have some deals. Check it out. I only shop from the 'eggs.

Microcenter doesn't offer deals like Newegg does. If you're buying combos, then Microcenter is the way to go!

This will leave ~$420 for you to spend on the rest of the system. If you don't mind losing 270MHz + OC MHz go with the Core i7 920 and save ~$300



Yes they were. Complete waste of $400.

I want to get this package but I'm wondering if i should wait untill they get discounted. It doesn't look like any of them are on a discount. Do you guys think they might slash the price a little if i wait?

maybe even 8 GB becuase

6GB-2GB from GPU-1GB from vista- 512mb from random things = 2.5GB

while if you have 8GB you get 4.5GB
What are you saying...

The Graphics card has 2GB of GDDR5 memory.. It doesnt "SUCK" it from the RAM! It doesn't use TurboCache
