Eh, I already typed this once, but accidently
posted it before I was finished. I deleted it,
and will post it again.

Anyway, there's this company called overstock.com.
They go around to all the failing internet
buisinesses and buy-out their remaing merchandise.
Then they sell that merchandise on their website
for a very low price.

They've been profiled on a lot of national TV shows.
This morning they were interviewed by my local
news-station (the company is located in my state).

I went to their site, and the had a lot of really
cheap computer-related-products. I don't know
how good this stuff is, though. So, for all you
informed people--will you please give me some
opinions? Is this site selling good products?

i got my 256 piece for 50, it's an LD generic though, but still... how good is 128/28? just curious... as well as the PC deal too, maybe that's better... haven't upgraded my CPU for a long time... [still on a 450 PIII...]

I got 512MB at Fry's (that Ram ram everywhere thread... incase anyone was wondering it DID work)

I also saw a machine running at 1.4Ghz (AMD Athlon) with 512MB of RAM, and a 30gig HD for $599 at a local store (no dvd though..). So im not sure if these deals are all that great.....
