And yet he got 20 post points for his last post!  lol


HAHA i  never got how the point system works...


Add another 2GB GDDR5 ATI Radeon 5970 for CrossfireX, change the motherboard to Asus with 890FX chipset, then put in the fastest Phenom II X6, add another 4GB of DDR3 but change all 8GB to 2000Mhz Crucial Ballistix Dual Channel Kit. Don't worry about the hard drive, 1 TB is quite O.K, just change it to a SATA II SSD. By the way, when you send this monster to me, please don't forget the 26" LED monitor and the Wireless Keyboard & Mouse. If there are still some extra place in the box, just simply fill it with a set of BOSE multimedia speaker and a multi-function color laser printer.

So..........PLEASE GIVE IT TO ME...


Alright its all yours, just head on over o gibbersomes place and take it...


I know right!
