    trying to figure out how to justify the deal, we have a rule .nothing more than 500$ without talking about it.

    I was gonna say $500 is the lowest end i7 chip you can get, luckily I looked, didn't realize the non-extreme editions had dropped so much in price. I'm still a cheapskate when it come to this stuff, for me anything new is a year and a half to three years old that way I buy $2800 lap tops for $400 and $400 chipsets for $80.

    When I rebuild my wife's system here's what I'll probably use, she uses it for work, limited games and internet surfing. The rest of the parts I already have existing in her current system. I'll stick with the DDR2 memory for obvious reasons.

    The Athlon quads benchmarks are better than the Phenom IIx2 so the cost ratio is acceptable with the Athlon quad costing about $20 more than the Phenom x2. Neither my wife or I am interested in box lighting, don't want it so a simple, usable box is all we need. The only other thing I might add in my system is a blue tooth but only after I've researched it some more and determined if it's a benefit to me.
