    I know ... there are no REAL perks to it. BUT... for the last 4 years I have qualified for the intel purchase program.


    This year's bundle will consist of the following:
    • Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E6300
    • Intel® Desktop Board DG965WH
    • Microsoft* Windows Vista* Ultimate
    All for the low, low price of $220

    Not bad ... Full version of Vista Ultimate would be more than that.

    What do ya'll think?

    Actually certian US retailers can do online training all year through intel. For each completed training you get points. Turn those point in at the end of the year to get your bundle. I have built 4 pc's. can't wait to build this one.

    Falling off the truck is more fun, you can get AMD then.
