Hahahaha! No cheap stuff for me. If you are going to buy something, buy it. Get good quality stuff.
So what's up with the E6400 then, just a stopgap until a good quality CPU shows up? :twisted:
Is there any difference between X-Fi Extrememusic and X-Fi Elite that I would actually use? I got decent speakers (about $300), my ears can't distinguish between mp3 160 kbps and wav, and I don't produce music or other sound files.
