I don't miss any of it. And this is how I know that this time will be the last time. Usually, I miss the Auction House, which I was good at--very, very good at. But, not this time.

Cataclysm saved my life.

Try everything you just did there in Newegg from Canada and you will find yourself overbudget..and I'll just have to say I'd choose my i3 system over yours.

I quit once I actually built a gaming computer -- Late 08. Near 4 years and nothing to show for it. Made $10,000+ from selling accounts (towards the end) if that counts but it was mostly blown on stupid stuff for WoW.
