    $300 for your CPU
    $500 for your GFX card
    $100 for your memory
    $200 for your motherboard
    $9.99 for your PSU

    Having a CHEAP power supply take out your computer PRICELESS.

    Hopefully all this stuff comes out relatively soon so I can kill all my hardware and justify to my wife another complete upgrade.

    Interesting stuff, but I think I'll wait a while, my C2D's are plenty fast for everyday stuff and the games I occasionally find time to play.

    I'm still gitty about upgrading about c2d soon. I recently read that intel now plans on making small updates quickly instead of large updates in order to prevent having AMD have processors better than theirs. I just hope that this doesn't mean necessary upgrades much more often.
