    Lol, I can't believe how many people are looking for every way to upgrade their computer, every way EXCEPT getting a job. If one is smart, they can put together a decent rig for >$1000, and it will be easily upgradable for the next year or two. Even a real crappy job at ~$8.00/hr will only take a couple months or so to earn enough.

      Oh FFS, quoted for the truth!!

      If you seriously play games, take your hobby seriously and save $2/day for future PC upgrades. You will never have to participate in one of these threads ever again.

          Mhm, I mean I am saying yes. I know it's a bit lame me having turned 18 in June and now I'm still living with my dad since about graduation of highschool in June(happy I got my diploma and such) B4 that is was sorta on and off time with my mom and dad. Oh sry, anyways, still plenty of played to pwn on UT2k4 with my PC that can get a good 100-200 FPS on it lol(3.06 Ghz P4 on the 533 FSB, 1 gig of Kingston HyperX DRR400, BFG 6800 GToc, AGP of course :/ so that means my upgrade will be a good one when it happens in a couple months). The 512 MB 8800 GT just came out and can be had for $250-300 but should lower down to 200-250 in a couple weeks, remember it performs very close to a GTX which costs more than double(just think about that, so what if the GT runs a bit hot, it uses quite a bit less wattage).

            That sounds like a great opportunity for a high school grad. You should take the job if offered. You will learn people skills, humility, responsibility, organization, etc. You will also learn that you should have went to college if you wanted a job that's challenging, fun, and exciting!

                      You know that is a very good point. Just about every build I have ever done has roughly cost me about the same amount of money. It's kind of eerie actually, considering how much everything else seems to be skyrocketing.
