Pulled the plug! My brother was in Washington DC today (he is on a business trip to the USA and he had an off day) so I spoke to a friend whose uncle have brought him pc parts from New Jersey before, and he told me about Micro Center. So I googled Micro Center, checked it out and got my bro to go there and he got me some goodies.

He picked up a i5-2500k ($190), Corsair Dominator GT 2000 CL8 2x2GB ($125) and a OCZ vertex 2 60GB ($131) for me. Super stoked, and quite happy. It worked out to be $446. In South Africa at cost price (dealer price) it would have cost me at least $605!! (all figures include tax)

Will get a mobo locally hopefully next week, probably the Asus p67 Pro.
