Sorry for consecutive posting (If I'm posting too much at a time, let me know)

Same model Seagate External HDD as the one Olin Posted, $65 on Newegg, since the previous $50 deal expired.

Promo code EMCHDD10A gets 10% off every internal and external HDD until July 22, and can be combined with the external Seagate HDD for a total of $58.49.

Newegg is offering Preorders for the Windows 7 Premium and Professional upgrade versions for half-off ($50 for Premium and $100 for Professional.) It's a good chance to get a cheap upgrade when Windows 7 gets released, but the preorders will probably sell out soon. You'll need to have XP or Vista already installed, since these are the upgrade versions.

AFAIK there's no support for upgrading from XP.
It's Vista only!

Cheers

Just checked Microsoft's Win7 update site. Apparently, both XP and Vista users can use Win7 upgrade versions, but with XP you have to do a clean install. That sure makes a lot of sense...

Or you can do like people are doing with Vista. Do a clean install with your upgrade CD and no CD key (don't activate yet) and then run the upgrade over that. Doing it this way ensures you won't have crap left over from your old OS. Just make sure you actually own the older OS to comply with the EULA.

I pre-ordered a copy of Windows 7 Pro and I also went ahead and ordered a new copy of Vista Ultimate since it comes with an upgrade certificate for Win 7 Ultimate. Only way to pre-order Win 7 Ultimate right now.

If this OEM copy of XP wasn't locked to this motherboard, which I plan to change out soon, I'd order a copy of Premium Upgrade.

OCZ ModXStream Modular 600W PSU is on sale for $70 with promo code EMCLVMR42. With a $25 Mail-in Rebate, brings the price down to $45 for a 600 Watt Modular power supply.

On Amazon, Logitech G9 Mice are going for curiously cheap, usually around $60, even through Amazon. Pretty big discount from its retail price of $100. I'm tempted to get one to replace my G5.
