    Deciding between motherboards

    i have the asus 590sli board, nice board, good OC. Only prob i have is the placement of the northbridge, it is right under the back of the the 2nd pcie slot, so it looks like i cant do much with performance cooling, not sure of the placement of the NB on the msi.

    Cheap ATI cards

    Not sure if you guys know this but ATI has an "employee purchase program" that employees of Circuit City, best buy and pretty much anyone that sells ati cards can take advantage of. The prices are pretty nice, for instance you can buy an x1800xt for $360 with a $50 mail in rebate, so if you...

    Circuit city advanatage is a scam

    they lied to you, scratches are considered physical damage ive went thro this issue before with a customer, it is not covered by the CSP (service plan) coverage. You might be able to purchase the insurance version of the plan that covers physical damage, it depends what market your store is in.

    Circuit city advanatage is a scam

    This is incorrect i work at CC part time and i sell more service plans than you could ever think and i dont see a dime! I would agree though that most of the PC installs are a ripoff and most service plans are a waste also.

    Sand paper for lapping 0.0

    paint supply store like Till or Sherman Williams, talk to someone knowlegable and build a relationship and every time you go back ask for the same dude to build rapport, most likely he'll be more willing to spend time with you to talk and explain differences or keep you updated on new products...

    Case window etching

    look in your phone book for local sign shops, most of them have the equipment for sand etching or even laser etching. I know that most of them use laser etching to make wood signs and laser or sand for glass pieces for border patterns on dining room table glass, etc.

    hmmm. I would say an athlon 3800, a gig of non performance memory (unless overclocking), 6800U (then get some aftermarket cooling, and overclock the hell out of it), and a 74gig 10k drive to hold system data and games.

    Newegg betray's us?

    well, i work at circuit city. For a brick and mortar to gouge prices is pointless, we would have to price match anyways, newegg and other online retailers can do what they want, bc they know they will sell them at any "reasonable" price. But i do agree, newegg's prices are horrible these days...
