He bought a VAIO I said NO way !, So I built him this for 847.00(w/o Monitor) with tax from Fry's Electronics + I charged 100.00 for Install process etc., So I need some Opinions what ya guys think, Good Deal or no.

Sledge is a older 80's TV series, Which was very funny indeed. Its out at COMPUsa at least its there only 24.99 for 4 x DVD of the whole first season. :)

I really dont understand people that say this. The only difference between 754 and 939 is dual channel, which in turn, gives 939 about 3-5% increase. People that say "its futureproof" are just plain stupid. Current 939 motherboards ARE NOT future proof! Trust me, when PCI-E becomes mainstream, guess whos upgrading along with the 754 folks? Plus, all the current 939 boards are trash.

That ambi-dextrous mouse kind of sucks (or so I heard). Max PC gave it a 3 out of 10 because of crap buttons which press like halfway long (not 2/3 of the way long like Logitech's).

"Trust me.......I know what i'm doing"

Only the funniest cop show EVER. Aired waaaaaay back in 1986. :)



Hey Gobbler! There is a reason why it barely lasted two seasons, NOBODY WATCHED IT! :D BAHAHAHAHAA!!!!1 Although the show does bring back memories of high school, I never got into Hammer. MacGyver was where it was at baby! He could save the world with stomach acid, a blade of grass and a full moon at low tide. http://www.tvtome.com/MacGyver/ He is the only Canadian I ever idolized. :afro:
