    I'll be getting it for R2000. It's a freakin steal.

    I really wanted to get an SSD drive. But damn, even I'm not mad enough to pay R4000 for a 80GB SSD drive.

    Its not overkill mate..Its there if you need it(not that you will anytime soon)
    I currently idle at around 6GB of memory used. Running 2 - 3 Virtual machines and it does nothing to my system performance is awsome. No need to shut them down when I need to play some games

    8GB cost me around R1500 I think. Normal DDR2-800 I went after quantity rather than the new DDR3. Would have cost me an arm and a leg if I got 8GB DDR3 :P

    I know how you feel mate. I bought a Samsung 24" about 3 months ago. Saw the 26" at IC last week for the same price
