Well I have been paying for a part here, a part there.....whatever I have left over from my paycheck.

Only things I need now are as follows:

2011 Motherboard ( been eyeing a Asus Extreme something or other )
2011 CPU ( the 3820 looks good enough for me. )
RAM ( Looking at the Vengence RED 1866mhz 16GB x 2 )
Corsair H100
Radeon video card ( I heard about the 7850 and ill wait until I hear more on that. Failing that....a 7950 MINIMUM )
Going nuts trying to find some BitFenix Alchemy red cables as well.

ah well.

Red alchemy cables will be back in stock at Canada computers sometime in the next week or two. We're restocking everywhere as fast as we can.

Don't you just want to spend your money with companies that have Reps on our web forums, and who actually give a damn? Ahh, I love it!

Quite agreed. It is a pleasure to know where to get ahold of them.

Thanks for your help xbournex.
