What to spend $600 on - Page 2

post #11 of 17
By the time you all get your checks , you could spend it on some good cheap parts , or a good laptop. Who knows , by then you will be able to get a computer that costs 1000 now , for 600 in august.

Because no one spends good money on AMD products anymore?

Seriously, just replace that 8600 with two 9600GT's and you should be smoking. Put the remaining $300 or so in the bank for next year, the E4500 is still a very good chip.
