Hey everyone!!

Thanks for all the interest in the PC!! All PM'S replied!!

As for taking it with me on the plane, it's not something I can carry-on with me. And the thing with airlines is that they cover up to 200 bux max on "stolen/damaged" luggage. That would pay for... One thing really... Plus I need to bring back personal effects that i've brought from Japan to Canada every time I went home for holidays / summer break.

I've SERIOUSLY looked into taking it home with me, but it just isn't in the cards it seems. Also, since i'll now be having my own patients, conducting my own research plus my GF to devote some of my time to, i'll essentially have little or no time to do ANYTHING much less computer related activities.

As for choosing Japan over Canada, it wasn't a financially motivated decision at all. In fact, I would have been more than happy to stay in Canada at decreased pay just because me and my GF like it here in Canada so much! Plus my parents are now living here so it would have just been more convenient for me.

The main reason that I'm going home is research / freedom based. I like the Canadian system of universal healthcare, but it's just very difficult to do what I want / need to do here.

Thanks guys!!

Just my perspective on that it almost sounds like your research is related to something inhuman or unethical.

Perhaps not - but then again how are we to know, seeing as you can do most things in Canada.

Wow that's an odd comment. I think he just means that with universal healthcare he's budget constrained :P

Yeah that board is $200+ off now.

Good luck with your sale and hopefully someone buys it in one piece.

Yeah when I bought it I got the board and the 1866mhz ram for $269 =) I was going to go with a 750i instead. But this rig is still far superior.

All PM's replied!!

Lots of lowballers!! No I won't sell it for 850...

If something doesn't work itself out then I might have to part it out... I'll still give it some time though...
