They are trust worthy, why would you think otherwise? :lol: So you can get a great system there, because you get a free motherboard if you buy a phenom 955.

How's that when I can hardle fit a 955? Make a CPU hulk for a gaming PC? I can hardly fit $112 in compared to 170+? The 955 can hndle Crysis so at that pint i need to focus on GPU?

I dont want to seem like an ass cuz I'm not. I'm bringing valid points. If you can form a i5 gaming build build thats 600 I'd be happy to see it.
 

Do you live near a microcenter?
