  1. Drop the the C3 AMD 955 and save $25.

    Faster Ram, same price.

    And how about saving $40 and getting a 5770 instead.

    And then that $40 savings put into a better case.
    Antec 300 Illusion?

    Otherwise it looks good.

    Also no hard drive?
  2. what's the difference between the c3 and the one I picked? Also link? Not familiar with that one.
