I paid a good price for the computer that I built last year, but this would make it really cheap.

I guess we have to get ready for Vista.

Did anyone download the beta like I did? It is pretty nice.

Im waiting and waiting and tech seems to get better while their prices keep coming down. At this rate ill finally be able to upgrade for a killer machine at a cheap price when im dead, LOL.

Really, I was supposed to build my machine few months ago. Now im glad I waited. All I need now is a good mobo and im set.
