More about : 2000 multi anomnious February 1, 2012 8:26:25 PM Your first 3 links are not working as for the rest seems really solid although if your waiting a month anyway might I suggest waiting to see how the competition is before you jump in bed with crossfire because it may drop significantly in price. Uneek February 1, 2012 8:50:08 PM Fixed the links, all links working now. I could be buying within the week to a month+. But I will be watching for future updates/releases and change accordingly.
