This isnt officially a deal yet because its not in stock so im posting here. If you have a "pc club" in your area then listen up. I just went in today to find out that they are about to offer a new promotion. Heres the run down
msi k7t 266 ddr motherboard
athlon 1 gig (266)
ultra cpu cooling fan
128mb kingston 2100 ddr ram
300 watt in win case
all for ...
Drum roll please...
upgrade to 1.2 athlon (266)for 559
or 1.3 athlon (266) for 599
I could be wrong but that sounds like a pretty good deal to me....
you could theoriettically build a serious butt kicking system for under a thousand dollars

That's not too great of a bargain. Get whatever pieces from PC Club that are cheap (except the DDR memory, which you should get from http://www.crucial.com , 256MB for what they charge for 128MB) and shop around for the rest.
I did a DDR upgrade this weekend: FIC AD11, 256MB Crucial DDR SDRAM (CL 2.5 @ 2-2-2) and a new Iwill SIDE RAID card (no onboard Promise or Highpoint raid controller to hack like in my old A7V). I used the existing CPU Tbird 750 @ 133x7.5, heatsink and case. My cost was $270 + tax.
Now I'll just ebay the old parts and this upgrade will cost less than $100 net.

the crucial deal is awesome i heared about it
but what gets me about this is the 266 bus cpu.....i dont thing the 750 athlon will really take advantage of that maybe thats just me though...I dont know what the price is on seperate parts from pc club either..its just nice to get it all in one place

I'm running a 750 @ 1GHz (133x7.5). It does take advantage of it. ;) 138x7.5 seems to work almost OK too, but I've been too lazy to change the voltage jumpers. I really like this AD11 (AMD 761 chipset) board so far.
