I saw a used (pulled from a month old dell) dual core processor on Ebay yesterday that, at that point, was going for $75... very tempting, but... maybe I'm chicken
I'd trust people here more. I'll keep an eye on it, but then again I don't want to have everything But my processor and have to anxiously wait for it
I am getting the optical drive from Mwave on their configurator page, though, I don't think it matters what page it's ordered from since they just drop multiple skus into the cart, but it's great that you purchased from there and know they send the brackets.
