Hopefully not much, at least for the first 3 quarters :P

I do need a new HDD though, and a silent cooler for the video card would be nice :)

Hmm, well new mouse since my MX700 is starting to show some wear and tear. Possibly a video card and maybe some watercooling blocks if I decide to keep my Reserator XT :)

I was looking for the none box, but it's non-existant :) I'm most likely gonna sell my rig sometime in April/May, there's more important things for the coming year than a sweet computer. I ticked Keyboard, as I need a new one :( Mine is still working (random SiliconGraphics aka Silitek), but it's loud as hell and it ticks me off!

I guess I have no excuse for not being as awesome as King... - iKillSteal

Seriously, big credit goes out to King for maintaining this list. He puts a lot of work into this thing and he deserves our thanks! - Verran

I selected just a monitor, as that's all that's definite since I just built a complete system a couple of months ago.
