I'll admit I'm a bit impatient at this point! I did order around 10am last Friday, but the card wasn't processed until today.

Newegg Order Processing

Anyone else get frustrated with Newegg's order processing time? They say 12-24 hours, but that is from the time they actually process your credit card. I ordered last Friday, but they just processed the card this afternoon and indicated it would be another 12-24 hours before it's shipped. I guess I ...

In the event something doesn't work quite right, I could open up a virtual window and run that app under XP or Vista 32. What I'm most concerned a...

I've been running Vista Ultimate on my laptop for about a month. The machine has 2gigs of ram and shows 656megs ran with Eudora and IE7 open. Not a bad OS, the UAC can be a major PIA.

From the Rocky Mountains

I've been visiting the site for a while, but finally signed up today. I'm getting back into building my own after buying for far too long. Used to build a ton of machines back in the 486 days. I'm about to build a new Core 2 Duo system. Maybe Quad... Maybe Extreme... This site has all the info I nee...

Nice site guys. Thanks for the additional recommendations. I"m going to go with the Corsair PS and consider adding the 8800. The quad core might be an option, but I read a review showing that the x6800 actually worked better with Photoshop.
