@Bob: Those are 2 x 1GB [=2GB RAM!!!]. I already have a decent USB card on my current computer. Same goes for the media card, but 52-in-1 is a pretty good number ;)

Ha! Freebies. I hate them. Why would you want a T-Shirt with the AMD logo on the back?

Ok, i guess i wasnt really paying attention. I just saw it was free, so i clicked it.

So anyways, when are you planning on getting your computer? If i can squeeze 3-4 more months out of the computer i have now, I will be able to get a much nicer one than my cyberpowerpc.com pc. Im trying to keep mine alive for that long, but im not sure.

I took out some parts because they already come with the motherboard. I also downgraded Vista from 64 Bit to 32 Bit (free shipping!) Oh, and I changed the case.

No!!! Do not, I repeat, do not do that just over some shipping charge. Make the most out of your processor and get a 64-bit OS! Otherwise, PdN will, as we have seen from benchmarks, way slower, along with any other apps that take advantage of 64-bit processors and their increased features and speed!

Well um... I was planning on 64 until:

I suggest going with Vista 32-bit if you use Vista at all. You'll run into more problems and less useability.
Hi,

I agree with ebackhus on this point. You will not be happy with the 64-bit version in most cases and there is no actual benefit to using it at this point.

The first post is (I guess) referring to driver compatibility. However, if you have newer hardware, there shouldn't be (many) issues.

The second is only referring to the lack of 64-bit programs. Come on, you love Paint.NET, don't you? And if you plan to keep this machine for 2+ years, there will be loads more programs to support 64-bit.

Look into he future, man. Enter it with x64.

You guessed well.

The only that break me to buy a new pc is that their is no decently working DirectX10 card.

And no decent 1280i HDTV implementation.

And Wireless Usb is not shipped yet.

And ...
