      I did see your WIFI USB stick, but I would rather have one that's N. It's going in my sister's gaming rig because she doesn't want wires all over the place.

      He sold all his stuff, so you'd have to do some more looking, but you can probably find a similar deal, especially when Sandy Bridge E comes out.

      Thanks for the link! And well I would need to get a PSU then too, the only other PSU I have are some OEM ones and my old thermaltake 480 WATT. That one comes with a antec 500 earthwats

      According to pricewatch, you can get a new Q6600 for $120, a GTX 450 for $117, and 8GB DDR2 for $76. That's $313, which leaves you $87 for the board. Not bad, but you could get something newer for about the same amount:

      $165 for the CPU, the same GTX450 for $117, get a P67 board from NewEgg for about $100, and you have $18 left over for some ram. I know Kenkicker had some 2GB DDR3 kits he was selling for $20 shipped.

      Hey t_ski, I know you're a intel lover, and I was wondering if a Q6600, GTX 450, 8 gigs of 800 and some HP board is worth $400. I'm thinking of getting my first intel rig!

      Yo homey, where do you work? Just curious, I worked for Sprint over the summer and saw all just one of their regional data centers. It was epic, thousands of fiber lines, millions of $'s of equipment, tons of goodies. Not much storage more router based equip, but I did see a single data closet filled with hdd's, prolly 20+ in just one cab.
