Ooooh, I never even thought about that. I'll have to take a look.
When we upgrade, we're usually buying 2 or 3 at a time (4 computers in the basement), so I always just use pricewatch.com.

Last week, I ordered a pretty decent system for just over $500. Not top of the line or anything (AMD Phenom II X3 triple core 2.8ghz, 4GB ram, 250gb hd, nvidia 9800 GTX+, etc), but not too many steps down either.

It usually takes a couple weeks to actually get them that way, but the prices are hard to beat.

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

Month isn't up yet. You may make it to 30k. That would rock. Sending me 15k would also rock. So please to be sending.

Oh, by the by, how much volume do you usually put in per month?

Ehm, I used to play like 1k games each month (only turbo's) but once i hit the $110s/$220s that changed to like 500-600 games. I have 437 now according to sharkscope so it'll be around 600 again because I'm pretty eager in the first few weeks of every month but start slacking near the end.

Edit: and thanks Mers.

Spam? Considering he's played 400ish this month that may be near impossible...

Well yea, at this point no I wouldn't think he would be trying to. I'm asking if he planned to or considered it or if I'm just making stuff up.

I think he was considering a prop-bet for 3k games. Although i think some people did talk a little sense into him

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

That's good, I wouldn't wish 3k games in a month on my worst enemy.

AFAIK nobody has ever done 2k games, I looked it up once, ironically for another person on a prop bet, but I recall Dario being the highest I believe.

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

2k games is doable, even if nobody has done it, several people have been within a few hundred, many that I know about are Stars players (if your turbo on FTP takes 6 minutes, our Stars turbos take about 11 on avg, so you do the math there).

2k games on Stars turbos might be worth a prop bet, especially if you have to play with a certain # of buyins (anybody could just play 2-3k $5 buyin games if the money is right, wouldn't matter if you lost money).

lol, 2k games in a month is easy. That's just 45 hours/week or so. I go to school full time and play about half that.

Have you played more than 325 games in a month or do you play somewhere besides FTP?
