Same with me if all the right hardware comes out i'm going to build a new computer hopefully this year.
i plan that by the end of the year i will be getting another new rig or at least some of the newer parts that come out as upgrades
What kind of hardware do you plan to buy in '08?

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...

I do need a new HDD
Speaking of which, any suggestions - small (<320gb, unless it's crzy good value) and fast?

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

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...
