    No, and its a rip for $130.. DO NOT buy ANY comp parts from Futureshop unless they offer lots of rebates on it, or else its probably a rip

    Heres some good stores in toronto you can compare prices with:
    www.infonec.com
    www.canadacomputers.com
    www.pcccanada.com
    www.macrotechpc.com

    Pickup some monthly local comp papers, something like www.tcp.ca they should distrubute copies in your area, and its free

    Bah. Im so damn confused as to what motherboard does what. What type of ram is good blah blah blah...

    Can someone like Brent type up some long, easy thing about

    what motherboard I should get, what ram I should get.

    And how I know this is all going to work together...

    I have a good friend who builds computers so thats not the problem.

    I posted a link about a deal on ram a couple of days ago.

    I don't know if it's still there but the regular price still beats that one and the ram quality at Crucil is great.

    Why don't you ask your good friend? There's nothing like actually talking to someone

    Cuz sometimes they work at some backwards mom 'n pop shop that uses Kingston or PNY or some other walmart grade memory.

    Stick with crucial, mushkin, viking, I've heard good about Kingmax. Personally, Crucial (which includes/owns Micron) is pretty much the biggest memory maker out there, great "buy direct" prices through their easy to use website...good stuff.

    LOL !

    Nickname came from an old Quake 1 clan, Melankee's, named after the classic cult flick "A Clockwork Orange". Everyone's nick started with "YeOlde"...and "Stonecat" was a carryover from my college days of being one stoned cat!
