    I see way more downsides... as said in the thread, selling multiple items, keeping 1 thread, going through all those threads ( what if I am looking for a whole new system, used, and by parts?)... How about FT or FS/WTB threads? it would at least multiply the number of threads in general by 2, if not 3... Besides, we or the mods don't have problems with the current setup, the rules are crystal clear now...

    Right you are n-ster! After thinking about it there are a lot more cons than there are pros. I mean, I don't want to have to make 5 different threads in 5 different sections to buy a few pieces of hardware. Someone in the thread mentioned splitting the B/S/T forum into FS/FT & WTB and I think that's a great idea. Granted there's nothing wrong with what we have now but there's always room for improvement.

    Now.. on topic :D I need some Dominators! 4GB DDR3 with blue heatspreader fins (like SNiiPE_DoGG's kit) is a major bonus. I'll stretch for 8GB if the price is too good to give up.

    I'll consider other RAM now too! I NEED TO GET OBELISK RUNNING!

    I like the way ocn is, i don't mind doing multiple threads.

    I hate looking through all the FS threads with only a few things in them that i don't really need.

    Like if i want to find a 5870, i would have to look through all the fs threads rather then looking in a GPU only section

    makes it faster for people to find things they need which makes it easier for the seller.

    Like 50 people PM'ed him already (me being one of them) but to no avail. The guy doesn't have any Heatware listed and has only made 127 posts in 5 years.

    Give him $215 tops. There's a Power Color PCS 5850 @ the Egg right now for $280 after a coupon code, and it comes with a MW2 key that you can easily sell for $40 bringing the total down to $240.

    My wife dropped her laptop last night. Now I need to get a new HDD for it. Going to buy a WD HDD off of NewEgg unless someone here knows of a great deal on a 30-60GB SSD. Bought the WD @ the Egg.

    I did see this though:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220455

    32GB SSD with decent reads/writes for $82 AR?
