  1. Yeah. >_>

    Anyway, the computer will primarily be used for internet surfing *coughcough*, gaming, music downloading, and the other random crap I do. Also, if anyone knows of a good, cheap DSL/Satellite (cable doesn't run out here) broadband service that runs most anywhere, that would appreciated, since I'm not having any luck finding one.

    Now, for what you've ALL been waiting for, Pengy/Rawk's... uh... computer? Also, all of this is from Newegg.

    Thanks, but I refuse to get Intel. I'm not sure why, but I can't stand them. >_>

    I'm planning on getting that case too. It has gotten really good reviews. I saw it in compusa, and it is really big! Lots of room to work in. It looks good! Hope this helps.
