Supreme Commander and Test Drive Unlimited... Infernal is alright
Thats true. Not tons of games. But I really miss playing UT2K4, BF2, HL2. Oldies but still goodies in my book. Not to mention my severe addiction to COD2 and Company of Heroes.

I will not discuss how much this whole setup has cost. Let us just say a few pennies anyway.

Like my wife said: "Honey I don't think we have ever spent this much on a computer before."

About $150 off.

I must say though I am so excited to finally own a CPU with an unlocked multi. This will be my first time. Although my goal is 350FSB x10=3.5GHz so having the unlocked multi does not really factor into that. We shall see if his is attainable or not.
