i just ordered a Razer Lachesis and a 150 gig Raptor today for the quad rig.
i want to put the OS on the Raptor before i activate my XP install...hehe.
i will definitely be buying a new MB at some point in the future.
i am waiting for somebody to release a new SLI board that actually works and performs well.
there is no way i am going to use an ATI card, and i want dual 8800GTX cards... :rolleyes:

I do need a new HDD


Speaking of which, any suggestions - small (<320gb, unless it's crzy good value) and fast?

Seagate 250GB

Seems like a good deal, although I have no clue about the UKs pricing :unsure:

I think I've bought everything on the list already in the past 12 months except a Physics card... I'm still waiting to see how the 2nd generation PhysX cards and GPU physics do before I get something...

I think I might get a larger, higher resolution monitor... 1680x1050 20" WS is ok, but I used to run 1600x1200 on my 22" CRT and kinda miss the vertical pixels... 1920x1200 should suit my wallet, graphics cards, and it being used at a desk (rather than as a TV)

other than that, I pretty much have bought everything I want already... except a full-hardware RAID 5 card which costs more than the four harddrives I want to use with it lol... that's a pipe dream really...

Probably another 4 gigs of ram, and a second vid card for a CF setup or I may go the SLI direction. I'd like to play crysis @< 30 FPS on high or very high.
I am DUMB, okay? Dumb as a post! Think I'm happy about it?
