Take a look at my sig rig, your computer probably matches mine and I paied 200$ for my 4850 512, and 250 for my quad.

How much was it though with mail in rebates? Personally I hate mail in rebates and avoid them at all costs.

Edit: also no windows 7? I have an idea what you did there lol.

Your choice of music makes me gag a bit, but that is a pretty pimp build for 340. Might be the next budget computer I build.

thanks man. And for music....I just didn't know what to put for that video. Even though I do like both of them, it doesn't necessarily reflect my music taste

classic rock and dubstep like a boss
but I listen to a lot

yeah, prices go down a lot
it was 340 with rebates, 420 without
and if you watched the video, you'd see that i do have win 7
I just didn't include it in the price of the rig


off topic:
fellow overclockers, is there a way to reply to more than one post at once?

ahhhh!!
I just finished this and I want to do more computer related stuff already :/
I really wonder how long I can go without upgrading.....
For right now though, to satisfy my desires (and to stay free) I'm working on cable management in my 939 build...and after i finish that, ill move on to cleaning up all the cables in my current build
