    :afro: Man... I love it when a plan comes together.

    Now, where is our van?

    Hypothetical question, if done today would they use a mini-van. :D

    Just so you know:

    Gateway has the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB for $220 - $30 rebate = $190. Apply coupon code NOSHIPA for free shipping.

    \

    -$30 rebate

    9800 Pro

    If this still doesn't work just click on the "deals" link in the menu on TweakTown's frontpage.

    Also try this link: Go go gadget link!

    Sometihng to consider, although the first link doesn't work. I have my doubts about trusting Gateway, but still, that's an even better deal....

    Don't screw yourself over by going with a cheaper company. Get the Sapphire for $210, its $20 more, but the brand and known awesome performance make up for it. : peace2: Mista K6

    Actually the card is made by ATI, but yeah, just figured it might be something to look at, the Sapphire is probably higher quality. It's over now anyways, so no point.

    I'm actually bringing this back to life.

    A few more things.

    I might not get this stuff until mid June (end of school). For about the same price, do you think I could build a system with some of the stuff? Would I want to rethink a lot of my current stuff (maybe not RAM, artic silver, cords, etc.)?

    Assuming I'm going with my current stuff, are the following changes okay?

    Previous mobo changed to either this or this.

    They are similar, but cheaper ($20 or $10). I owuld prefer the cheapest but the other is there in case someone thinks something is wrong with the cheaper one.

    Retail Barton 2500 changed to OEM Barton 2500.
    $4 cheaper because it doesn't come with a retail fan and heatsink. I figured since I was getting a Thermaltake Volcano 10 anyway it would be okay.
