hahaha nah thats no favor,

To make a short story, my father was a mailman, and well he retired a year ago, and the one who sells me that pc ( i have to assemble it.. but thats no big deal) was one of my father's "client"

So at one point we were looking for a PC... the company was starting, and they made a deal with my father.. and ever since i've been buying peices off them all the time.

And now its kind of a "big fuss" because i can have the I7 showed above at its cost price, 275 flat. so we'll see how things turn out but with them it is ALWAYS a sweet deal haha

and well.. save the taxes by paying cash.. ok so to speak it is kind of black market but... well all peices are brand new and crap and company is going well! haha :P
But yeah, saving taxes for me in quebec means that i save 15%

I just received all my stuff, though my I7 Box was already open :O

The processor was still inside but not the fan, though it does not matter since i already have another fan to cool it down, ima still wait to be sure with the warranty.. so i gota wait another whole week to try this baby out

Hmmph ive grown tired of my vid card / motherboard, next opportunity i have i'll upgrade... i'm really REALLY digging the Nvidia Geforce GTS680 (690 is overkill haha and way too expensive)

And motherboard is more of a matter of space than anything else...

Plus once SSD have better space, i'll be getting one, because frankly... with 300gb its wayyy too expensive for me still, that'll last me about a month...

i Have 2TB right now and ive got 300gb left sooooooo yep
