haha, don't worry about it. Unless you're heavily into it like I am, and read up on the new tech like every week, then in a months time you're 'out of the loop.' Gotta love fast moving markets

I think the price is around the right area, as long as nothing wrong with the parts, sounds like a good deal.

My System Specs

Default

Purchased it yesterday. Was very happy with the buy. He also gave me his 320GB Hard Drive and a version of Windows 7 Ultimate Corporate Edition. It doesn't require activation. Altogether quite happy with the deal.

The Antec 300 is a nice case but small if one is using a gigantic 11 inch GTX275. But the main thing is I save the HST and I get a high end unit for $890.

Still trying to get used to Windows 7.

You only need pro if you need to network on a domain otherwise home edition is fine.

Congrats on the purchase. Definitely a good deal. Had an almost identical setup a while ago, which I ended up selling.
