  2. NNN possible. Though I dont know if I can trust them. I've seen their site and it seems strange though I heard good things about it.

    They are trust worthy, why would you think otherwise? :lol: So you can get a great system there, because you get a free motherboard if you buy a phenom 955.
  4. HOT DAMN! Well I was looking at this after I posted this.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.759542&cm_sp=DIY_PC_Combos-_-759542-_-Combo

    That's weird, it went up 20 bucks since I checked a few hours ago.... It was $554
  5. You could build an i5-2500k machine for $600.............
  6. How's that when I can hardle fit a 955? Make a CPU hulk for a gaming PC? I can hardly fit $112 in compared to 170+? The 955 can hndle Crysis so at that pint i need to focus on GPU?

    I dont want to seem like an ass cuz I'm not. I'm bringing valid points. If you can form a i5 gaming build build thats 600 I'd be happy to see it.
