Hi All,

I posted a thread in another section then realized that this is the more appropriate place. Can a mod move that question to here?

For now I'm just linking to it and ask that all posts be done in the other thread.

Thanks.

I guess it's not worth it for the extra $140 for the DDR 2000 huh, lol.

I'm going to do a "copy & paste" on here from another build I just posted a few minutes ago. At the bottom of this build, I would like you to check the "total price".

Now I can add another one of those gtx 285's to this build making the total price $1,842.80 *not includding shipping and rebates and this rig down below will blow that one from ibuyripoff.com away. :)

That's why I post here. Always looking for advice :-). Would the $470 GTX 295 be worth it to go quad?
