I'll save a few bucks if I get all the part separatly (is that a word) well, 1 by 1 and price match them... as long as the site lets me do it.. weird bug. Thing is, it really has to be under 300$ or very very close because over that...Well, lets say I dont really want to pay the extra from my pocket

Altrought, im still not impressed by the graphic card and the memory.

Anyone has an idea of anything which would be best kick for the buck?
