Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Well since the 650w PSU in my daily driver finally died after 6 years of running the system at 100% load 24/7 I had to break down and pick up a new PSU. Picked up a Corsair GS 800 at Best Buy since I had an abundance of gift cards and rewards certificates.

CPU/Mobo/Ram together was my last purchase, not too long before that I upgraded my cooling loop.

Won a CM Storm QuickFire Rapid. Got a GTX 580 to replace my 5770s over the summer. Then finally had to get a new SSD to replace my dead one and a new Logitech G500 to replace the broken one.
