Thread Starter 
well...im out of budget right now ( after the mobo and the CPU ) im not considering buy a new case after all...

i think i will stick with the q9550 and the p45 ...

thanks for all ( rep + )
note: i may do other topic after few weeks..(changing the correct budget )

cuz im not sure i will get the 400$ or less

is there any excepted price drop for the intel CPUs? ( i heard there will be one in next few months not sure )

thanks again

If it is JUST the board and CPU you might be ok. Throw the mobo and cpu on a local used website and get a few bucks back from it if you have no use for it. And depending where you go you can always try and haggel a better price.

Email them and ask for the cpu, mobo and case... if it sucks, then just stick with the mobo and case.

I didnt order anything off the web either, makes me too nervous. But I did get a deal on the hardware I bought new. Always ask for a better deal, the worst they can say is No. I found like every part on sale somewhere, and went to one shop and said I want all of this, can you price match? He said sure and beat the price by another 2%.

Funny thing is during my haggling, I got a parking ticket for 30$ on my car. So in the end I didnt save much, but if you dont get a ticket your golden!

Well Ive heard good things about them... so I dont know. My prices I was giving you were also in Canadian. So I actually spent less than you. The video card is the biggest thing for a gaming PC.

Post it in this thread so I will get an email. 1280X1024 is descent, any smaller and its gettin ahrd to see. But for games and stuff I guess...

LCD prices are dropping like crazy so Im sure you could grab something bofore long.
