    Gotta love AMD sometimes. Hopefully when ZEN releases, a lower cost gaming PC can be compiled. Though the cost of windows will always be a major draw back.

    The amount of games available on Mac and Linux these days is actually quite surprising. You can have a really good gaming time sans Windows...

    New Bundle on Carbonite is about R3200, Gigabyte Motherboard with 2 pci-e slots, I5 4590 CPU and 2 x 4GB DDR3 RAM. Add the R2000 GPU and it's R5200. You can get a HDD for about R700 so R5900 and a nice case for R500, total R6400. Cheaper and better I would say.

    If you are buying from a wholesaler it should be weekly, on retail it will go down when they import new stock. A guess only though.

    On a lot of items, especially CPU's and such wootware is cheaper than wholesalers, looks like they fly some tech in themselves. So to get the same price, cheaper or as close to wholesale price, wootware and rebeltech are both good.
