    Guess how much it cost! (and this is you guessing)

    EVGA GTX285
    Intel Q6600
    Asus ROG X48 Formula
    8gb Patriot DDR2 @1066
    Kingwin 1000w psu
    Antec 900 Case

    And what's it's actual value? (this is me asking y'all how much it's really worth)

    I won't keep it drawn-out but for now, the only clue is I paid for less than it's actual value.

    Yeah ddr2 prices are dumb right now. I've got a total of 16gbs of DDR2 now and i can only fit 12 gb in the system since it would be 2x4's and 2x2's.

    First world techy problems.
