Change of Plans September 16, 2008

So, I was supposed to be in Houston right now but the damage caused by hurricane Ike has put a hold on that. Now the thing is I was hoping to get some tech shopping in ( before all my Euros are gobbled up by the tax collector) while over there giving me a significant savings. Maybe this will happen next month!

So in the mean time, I am thinking of passing the time by either getting a Dell Inspirion mini9 or upgrading my home PC a bit with the following components:

  • ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro – 45 CFM
  • ASUS P5Q Deluxe – Chipset Intel P45 / ICH10R
  • CRUCIAL Ballistix – 4 Go ( 2*2G ) – PC6400 – 800MHz
  • INTEL ® Core™2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz FSB 1333MHz 6Mo cache socket 775

This upgrade would give a nice all purpose machine good enough for some good gaming. Money wise, this would cost roughly the same.

What’s your vote?

Update 20080921: Looks like if I buy the kit in the US I’d be saving anywhere between 20% to 30% – so going to wait.
