Uhhh, she plays Maplestory atm. We might fight for the computer cus she doesn't want a black case. And me being too lazy to switch out ALL the components, I'm just gonna ask my mom and my sis and see what happens next.

I'm getting the 9600GT for sure though since I need it for Crysis and stuff. X850XT just doesn't cut it at 1280X1024 lol.

@Dashock. That is exactly the reason why I won't purchase much from BB and FS. I find their comps to be overpriced compared to when you DIY.

I want to do that, but *sigh* mom and sister has the right this time =.="

I just found out NCIX charged me $99.99 for the WD Caviar 640GB instead of the Back2School sale price of $78.99. I sent them a message through customer care before to get it changed from the Seagate to the WD, and they said it was fine. But now, I have to message them again and stuff asking them to follow up on that. I better get the $78.99 price. Paying over $20 just for a minor performance boost is not worth it..Hope they will give it to me anyways.

Edit: Seems that they'll honour the price difference since I should be getting the $78.99 price instead of $79.99. Definitely will buy from NCIX again.
