Lithcause, I think the issue is that most people were trying to minimize price, where it seems like you were trying to get every single accessory possible. So everyone else here ordered 256 or 512 ram then upgraded saving a hundred or 2 hundred dollars. By your Ebay 40% comment, it's apparent that you haven't researched much before your purchase. I'm glad you think you got a great deal, but the rest of us here are probably thinking the same thing as me: you wasted a lot of money!
That said, if it's what you wanted, congrats. My 9300 cost me $1400 and I love it. Your performance will only be a bit better (5000+ on 3dmark05, mine's 4000). So, enjoy.
