So many people are posting their systems with above 2000 using the instant discount but it's only valid until Jul 05, 2006 to Jul 31, 2006...So it shouldn't count?..

Is it just me or is the PC Builder really buggy? Like its missing a whole bunch of parts depending on what base system you pick.

Don't we all need to create the system ourselves using the [rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=28]NCIX[/rfdlink] PC builder?

Is copying and pasting other's configuration allowed?

Don't get me wrong. I don't mind people sharing the same configuration with me, but this guy not only copied my configuration, but also my configuration number, does this qualify?

Um, who cares? If he wins, he wins. If you win, you win. There's no copyright against a PC configuration that doesn't exist... :lol:

^ huh?

anyway for Ryan:

are we allowed to change our configuration after we posted it?
are we allowed to pick say 3 conroe chips (provided it came under the $2k limit)
FS: Xbox One X (NEW)

We're all in this together. Be kind and civil with one another
