Out of the Blue

I was driving MrsBlue to the train this morning when we each asked the other if they had passed wind (the kind of intimate conversation that one gets married to experience). When the answer was no, we thought something had died in our car (the smell was that bad), but then I saw I had stepped in dog poo, which is not the easiest thing to check for while driving. I must have stepped in it between our house and our car, which means it was on our walk, which means I need to go shopping for a "Curb Your Dog" sign, though I may need to make one of my own, as I'm pretty sure the store-bought kind won't offer the level or profanity I am seeking.

Well, a quick list:

Memory - $185
Patriot Extreme performance 4GB
http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16820220227

Video card - $355
EVGA 8800GTS 640MB
http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16814130071

MB - $130
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3R (no firewire though)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128050

Processor - $278
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (look for the G0 stepping - SLACR - shop around to guarantee that version - runs cooler and less power draw)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115017

PS - $55 !!! after rebates
COOLER MASTER Real Power Pro 500 RS-550-ACAA-A1 ATX12V / EPS12V 550W
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171025

That's what I am using now - works out to $1,003 plus tax and shipping. I'm sure you can look around and shave a few $$$ here and there.

Edit - got my SLACR Q6600 at ClubIT - they have it for $265.

There - just saved you $13 - now only $990!

Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you.
