Is it ever - about $75-$80 per CPU so-to-speak but bundled into 1. Even just 1 of those 4 CPUs by themselves is good. 4 together is absolutely awesome.

2 GB OCZ RAM (DDR2 800 MHz), new ASUS mobo with ability to support the Core 2 Extreme (forget it I'm NOT spending $1,000+ in a CPU), 250 GB SATA II drive X 2 RAID 1.

In my case we need a new stove & we have a dishwasher to install (along with the plumbing & refit under the counter). That on top of the recent computer purchases, the new car I now have, & everything else. Computer spending is now halted until next year. (Wait that's less than a month hmm...)

Just push that X2 a little harder & you might get there. 2,400 credit in 18 days so you must average about 1,333 per day. Should be close...
