Try PC decrapifier .

It'll pull a majority of the bloatware off newer systems

At least they list the software installed, so it should be in Add/Remove Prgrams

And, other than the triple core, you do realize it'* just a Gateway Computer with a TV Tuner card, right??

After digging a little more the Phenom 8400 is out in system form, just not as a discret chip yet.

Looks like you should be getting it soon xDRx, Grats!!

Whoo! It was just shipped out yesterday.


Heres the tracking number if anyone wants to stalk it
1Z1836924242870016

and the delivery date is expected to be TOMORROW!!!!!

It feels like christmas when I was a little troublemaker. Weeks before I'd get anxious and crazily excited. Then the day comes and I go apeshat on the presents

I feel that same way. Except I'll be more calm and I'll post a video of the opening for your eyes .

Although whats odd is my card hasn't been charged yet for the first payment of the computer.... Wonder what that is..

Personally I would have built the same computer for about $700, but thats beside the point that I never would have built one like that.

I guess the price isn't that bad, but too bad it wasn't a Core 2 Extreme

Take pictures! Set that badboy up and keep us updated, I'm curious how that goes. (how much crap is on it, etc)

That'* with a $250-300 22" Widescreen LCD, speaker, KB Mouse.

Not a bad deal. Building would be about on par with his price.
