Hmmm...

Maybe I do. I am looking to upgrade my gaming machine soon. I want to get the DX38BT

Intel C2D E6600, Intel D975XBX mobo and the 8800GTS.

What would you offer for that combo?

How does that set up run? I am primarily playing WoW but I get a lot of lag, I have a really old computer though...

ATI Radeon 9800 XT
AMD 64 3200+
1 Gig Ram
Abit KV8 Motherboard

---

No doubt yours is an upgrade, but it'll probably blow mine outta the water right?

Hehe, pretty much yeah.

It is a good board/CPU/Video combo runs WoW at 100-160fps if I remember correctly. But it does have 2 150gb raptors in Raid 0 so that does play a major roll in it's performance.

EDIT: So anyway, make me an offer. New the components run about $169 MoBo, $174 for comparable processor and $300 for the video card.
make me an offer, I may take it!

Ground with Insurance is $16

2nd day w/ins is $34.32

I'll eat the $16 you eat the $18.32 if you want it 2nd day. Probably not a good idea as 2nd day will be there Monday and ground will probably be there Monday as well.

Be a man, pull the trigger. Don't ask your wife for permission. She will say she needs something stupid like food for the kids!

It is going to the wrong address. =\

I emailed you the correct address and PM'd it but I think the PM didn't get to you.

Well, I put the correct email in the Paypal payment comments and the PM on the forums, but my Paypal account address is what it was sent to. That was an old address. Package isn't scheduled to actually ship until Dec 10th, and I can't see a way to do anything to it on UPS.com. It says there are options but I don't see them.

I see where it can be changed on the UPS website, but I need like an UPS InfoNotice number, which I don't have, but Xkhanx might.

You can call them. I used to work at FedEx and that kinda stuff happened all the time. Just tell them it's an expensive item and it was shipped to an outdated address that was on file with Paypal, and they'll hold it at the local hub so you can pick it up.

If worse comes to worse, I have a buddy who is a manager in the middle-management level at UPS, he might be able to help...

They can change the delivery address too, so they don't have to hold it. I'll wait until I hear from Khan before I do anything.

Yeah, apparently it tacks on whatever the shipping address that is in the account, so I fixed that for the next time.

Got the updated info. Thanks for fixing it!

Ok, dropped off at UPS at about 3:15 so you should be able to get tracking info by tonight or early tomorrow.

Just an FYI, I cleaned and prepped the CPU surface with ArctiClean Cleaner & ArctiClean Thermal Surface Purifier. When you go to install it, try not to touch the top of the CPU. Don't forget to put some thermal grease on either...

Gah... package is like stuck out in the nether, and I just found out why.

It's being sent to zip code 92803 instead of 92083.

Received it yesterday, installed everything without issue. That card is a lot quieter than I thought it would be.

Outstanding! I hope you didn't get your hopes up by the CPU being in Q6600 packaging!

Glad you finally got it.
