too many choices thats all....Its normal to second guess ypurself when you are plunking down 3K.
So...I am SORRY
if I have offended.
Now lets see those benchmarks from a fx1000
The main reason that I pushed this so persistantly was based solely on the fact that you had questioned my credibility with no apparent remorse. That is one thing that I take more serious than anything else in my life. In your last post, it reflects a different state all together and that is something I can admire.
When I make comments in my life that I regret, or where I feel that I am mistaken, I am usually the first to admit that to be the case. On that issue, I hold others to the same standard. I do not always expect to make friends in doing so, but in that particular case I will be persistent at a high cost.
So thank you for showing that side, and in my mind we can move on because that was my purpose in what I did and said. I do hope the 8600 or m60 works out and suits your needs. The most important thing is being extremely happy with your choice going into the transaction. Regardless of which one you choose, check the Coupon section in the dell forum, as you will usually find 15% off coupons or others. I usually receive one a week and post them, along with countless other people. I would also recommend signing up immediately for their newsletter, as that is why dell sends me the coupons. It usually takes about 2 weeks to start getting the coupons, but if you buy in the meantime, they will probably have them in the coupon forum. The part I signed up for was small business, as they are usually the best coupons.
If you should choose Alienware, the only coupons I know of are $80. Usually found in any magazine add (Maximum PC, CGW, etc.)
On one other note, solely mentioning this in a comical sense: "dont sell when its already sold." They had this on the show "The Apprentice" last week. A 10 year old told one of the guys this and about blew his mind. Don't know if that is where you saw this, but it was one of the best lines I've seen from someone that age in a long time.
