Well, what did you get charged? Was it more than the sales ticket?

Default Re: Opinions on new machine

I would have went with a i7-930 since they overclock to 4gigs pretty easy .The i7-950 is double the price of a i7-930 and you gain nothing unless you are going to run it at stock ,but that would be a waste since the i7-930 overclocks so well.I would have went with two GTX 470's since they overclock so well.But still a killer system
