It's a piss poor clone then because they look nothing alike.

I love the 'For Sale' section on OC.net, could save me a lot of money by buying from members here. Just wished I joined earlier for some of the components.

If time is not a factor, then wait. It's a matter of time before you see what you want on sale here. People are selling components all the time. I bought my HIS HD 4870 1GB on here a little over a month ago and a Q6600 back in June or July.

Yeah, I'll probably wait till the end of December and see if there are any great deal on here or ebay.

When you see what you think is a deal, I'd pounce on it. And if you catch wind of a better deal coming along, sell whatever you bought. I got myself an E8400 back in June for $160 or so. At the time, that would like $25 or $30 below retail. Then I caught wind of the July price drops. I ended up losing a few dollars overall, but I would have lost a lot more if I waited another week or two to get rid of it.

So after having experienced that, I suggest you buy your processor last. You can probably put off buying your video card, too. I've seen the price of motherboards change very little since I started pricing things back in June. Same with hard drives, power supplies and cases. Processors and video cards seem to change every month to three months. Memory seems to come down at a steady rate, too. I bought this kit for around $120. It's $78 now.

So if I were you, I would buy my RAM, CPU and GPU right before I'm ready to build. Get everything else first.

Thanks for the tip. I actually bought a E8400 for $120 from {core2dueo}-werd so now I just need to look out for deals on the other components I want.

From the reading I have been doing, The Gigabyte UD3P seems to be the motherboard to get for the price. Its out doing some of the Rampage Asus boards, for 1/3 the price, and pushing some high FSB(not sure what that is though LOL). I originally was going to go with the P5Q Pro, but cant build the PC now, and after reading and reading, I think the UD3P is a better deal.
