    after Shipping&handling and tax, from the egg it costs ~110$... I guess buying used would be a pretty good thing if he's comfortable with that though

    Well i dont really have patience to wait for stuff, so thats y im not shopping online and just pikcing up, im trying to go as cheap as i can but still be a decent system. Now if i decide not to go i5, im deff getting this q9550 http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0299412

    Going this way i dont want to spend more then 350 on the chip and the board so whats a good OC board for about 150 doesnt have to be from that site, just need to know which is good for that price
    I will deff get one setup or the other, Comes down to how much i could sell my board, cpu and ram for lol after ive bought one or the other setups lol

    Thanks again

    Cool, im jsut waiting for a price from my local store for the board


    Edit ok they dont carry GB only asus and Msi. What do you guys suggest? Looks like they will take my p5k, e8400 and 4gigs ram for trade in. So one thats not too epensive but not crap and will OC. This is what i ve found
    This MSI http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applicati...?EdpNo=5083743&csid=ITD&body=MAIN#detailspecs
    ASUS http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=43123&vpn=P7P55D&manufacture=ASUS

    I don’t know anything about that MSI board. A guy I work with only buys MSI, swears by it. I typically purchase gigabyte, asus, or evga for clients. Can’t go wrong with that asus board.

    Well they said there supplier is backordered on msi p55 boards and doesnt know when they will be in, so that out of the question. Unless i sell my current board, ram and cpu ill have to settle for something a little cheaper i guess. Put them for sale for 200 for all three.

    Well its looking like this is what ill be getting, ordered 5mins ago http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=e7Zic83PvQSr80Lm&templete=2 and some ramsinks for mosfets. All straight trade for my board, cpu, ram. its all they had or would trade evenly lol. they said they dont deal with GB anymore because their customer service is bad.
