    that or check the Buy sell trade thread i know POS PC had a few 8800gt's and an 8800gts 640 etc for damn cheap and they should be more then enough to hold you over and save you a few more $$$ on top of it all

    9600gt 512 $60

    well if your going to upgrade to a new gpu it dosent make sense to buy a $100 gpu just to replace it id say your better off with a 8800 / 9600 / 4770 etc to tide you over and save yourself some cash as more cash saved now means the sooner you can get a nice shiny new gpu just trying to help you save a few bucks

    also try the same parts but try Tigerdirect they might give you cheaper shipping which will help you out a bit as well

    i linked the first one i found XD :roll:

    if you cant find something they will play your games well at your res then get the 4850 my point is you have $700 and cant spend even $30 over so how is that much different from saving $30 for a better gpu later that you plan to upgrade to ;) thats the only point im making

    that should work nicely with a good 120mm fan on that xiggy you can hit 4ghz with that X2 550 and it should be enough to hold you over

    just make sure yo OC that cpu and gpu :toast: so you get the most out of your money

    also look at the Coolermaster Hyper 212 its fairly close to being on par with the stock s1283 but its $10 cheaper to boot

    yea last i checked a hyper 212 with 2 decent 120mm fans can rival a True 120 extreme so later on you can just bolt on another fan and get much better cooling :toast:

    Well I think I've made the final cart. Should be ordering soon. Do the 550's really hit 4ghz?

    its a BE so set the multi and forget it you will hit at least 3.8ghz 4ghz with some tweaking and if your really really luck you might be able to unlock the X2 to an X4 but its rare and a gamble
