    Contact t_ski on the ram and a HDD. He had some real nice ram in his FS thread. Good prices too! :toast:

    and he found me a couple of 80GB WD HDD's for my crunchers not too long ago :)

    I've seen some good deals but out of cash for now so I haven't shown interest in any because of that.

    Let me know if you need anything Else Cp after Norton's pm and I may have something to help you get that cruncher going.

    Thats the fun of it. What until the bug hits and you want to build as many crunchers as you can. LOL

    he also had a phenom 1 quad if it will work in your board. Not sure which chip would be better though.

    7750BE is (IIRC) half of a PhI quad, so I'd say the quad would be better :)

    it can only take old school X2's like 3800+ or 4000 series. Been on newegg.ca and seen a 4600+ for $41. I may bite on that in the near future :D

    But would it really be cheaper for someone in the US to buy it and then ship it to you in CA? I'm not sure that shipping would be much less than $17...

    If all goes as planned, I will have sold both of my remaining dual core computers by Sunday (no, these aren't crunchers, just sales systems left at home). Guess what that means? $275 towards a new cruncher :D
