Emosun, I guess there was some kind of natural disaster in thailand and it greatly reduced the supply of HDD's in the market, consequentially the price for HDD's seems to have almost doubled.
As far as spending too much for the CPU, I would rather not do that, but I like the 3.5ghz quad core and I didn't see better options for the same or a similar CPU for cheaper. Any advice on what CPU I should go with?
