tHE p6x58d is a good board, just remember to turn off E-GATE or whatever in the BIOS if you don't want to be bothered w/ the operating system on the SSD that is int. on the board.

ugh neweggs price to sell within state is just ripoff period.

sure its convenient to have the stuff within a day, but i think if you would have shopped around you could have gotten better deals.

all in all it should be a decent rig

Wow, $1200CAD is how much my (inferior) system cost

Oh wait, you reused that hard drive and SSD, so those counted your system would be more like $1500

EDIT: Coincidental.... 1200TH POST

Thanks. I looked around for some deals when I went to microcenter & frys yesterday but I really couldn't find any or I was too lazy to look around the whole place lol. I was comparing everything from newegg with the prices in the stores with my Droid and I didn't really find anything better than the newegg prices. So all I ended up buying was the 902 since it was the same price as newegg and I wouldn't have to wait for it to ship + the CPU at a smaller price.
