for buying computers or computer partsNewegg and Tiger Direct can't be beat. I recommend tigerdirect more however, because of it's great deals and overall low prices. To pay in monthly installments, you can use their "Bill Me Later" option.

Tigerdirect seems to do that for you but the shipping might cost a little, but its your decision. there is an option on some of their deals and you choose to modify that deal which means you can choose other stuff to add to the computer that their selling.

Its in your budget on the US site http://www.tigerdire...sp?Base=2109668

If you did get it it would be the fastest gaming machine that money can buy using standard components.

Bumping only annoys those who are willing to help. We do everything on a volunteer basis.

To answer your question about "Isn't SLi better than Crossfire," - that's a matter of opinion. SLi is much more popular at the moment than Crossfire, but I would imagine that once the cost of a Crossfire setup drops, it'll be just as popular as SLi.

Does Crossfire offer limited expandibility? Well, in what nature?
