    Newegg.com and shentech.com..give them a try...they are real good retailers and shentech is under the "top service" category in yahoo shopping.

    If you are gonna stick with the 4600 anyway look at the chaintechs like a mentioned b4 real cheap.:thumb:

    Since you are in the process of checking out prices look into Ebay like said b4...you will find new cards for real good prices.

    As for the help...No problem:)

    I found that Googlegear had some good prices on CPU's. When I ordered my RAM and CPU from them it came very promptly in good packaging.
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    Okay, so after the comments you all offered, I've changed my system a bit. It is now: .... well now, I did a split between shentech.com and googlegear.com, and I can't figure out how to view my saved cart at shentech. This day has been too long.

    There we go, that wasn't too user friendly, any who (yeah, I like to type alot, sorry)

    (items that changed listed)
    Aspire ATXA2ESW/420 case (I just have this thing for bigger cases)
    Albatron PX845PE Pro II (supports 333Mhz RAM standard w/o overclocking, and supports up to 3.06Ghz for upgrading)
    Leadtek Ti4600 AGP (better cooling setup)
    (2) ViewSonic E90fb 19" 1600x1200 (better refresh rate, and 2 for the price of 1 20")
    (2) WD se 80G 7200rpm 8M buffer HD's (Thanks for the heads up FLaco)

    I think that's it, that changed. I looked into the RDRAM, but read this post....ah hell, can't find it now, but there was a comment/rumor of RDRAM not being the 'next step', so I kept with the DDR333 PC2700. Spoke with a guy here at work, and he kinda gave me the same impression.

    Thats funny you mention that monitor...since i ordered it last weekend. That montior seems to be a very good one. Support resolutions a lil over 2000 and at a high hertz considering the res. My friend has a Viewsonic and man its clear and full of color (literally is vibrant) ..he has a different model a lil older than the one you mention and i ordered. Good thing you changed your mine on that WD those things are sweet just ask Saidin or PGA.

    The Ti4600 is always up to you and even though it has a better cooling setup how much do you need if you aren't even thinking of overclocking...IMO i wouldn't get the Leadtek over the Chaintech if it too much more..if not go for it.

    I haven't heard much about Albatron...maybe someone can give their two cents about it...The system rocks man...:thumb:

    Oh, i was thinking that when you finally get your dually...you can swip components and use that intel & 4600 for your gaming rig...

    I forgot to mention TAKE PICTURES..i wanna see that dual monitor setup on the desk...just for kicks if you want.:)

    *i see you found good stuff on shentech.com huh?*

    I'll have to look hard FLaco, I couldn't fina anything on the chaintech VC. Course, like I said it's been a long day... still is... gotta get up in 6 hours to work out. :bounce: Gotta keep the blood flowing.

    I figure this is a good start freelance machine and can turn into an awesome game machine later.

    Glad to hear you like the monitor, and I am picking those from shentech, as well as the OS, mouse, case, think that's it.... Thanks again for the tip.

    I should be ordering it all next week. I wanna get my demoreel and portfolio together before I fork out the cash. Can't make money if I can't show work.

    I'll be sure to take photos of the setup for ya. Laters!

    Hmm,... so I was looking at the shentech website, and it's setup like this:

    http://store.yahoo.com/shentech/contactus.html

    Then, a co-worker told me about a system he ordered from cyberpower inc. I went to the website and found this:

    http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/info.html

    Shentech is from NewYork and CyberPower Inc. is in Cali. Guess they could be related... :confused:

    Nothing really harmful, but has anyone ordered from cyperpower? If they have the same stuff as shentech, I'm gonna go cyberpower, cus they're closer to me. Lemme know, Thanks!

    Alot of people use that format of web page...directron uses the same one...

    Also, since you are thinking about shipping distance make sure you look at newegg since they are located in Cali. as well. Also make sure they don't tax you either.
