Yikes! I hope you're not going to be gaming at all :P

I will be however of course only on one, I just like a Dual Monitor setup, so like I can have Firefox on the main, and have my email and instant messaging on the other, however I havn't seen 2500x1600 Res in person, only 1800x1440 (using now) so I may go back on this, though most likely I wont :D.

I'm really only looking into buying some more RAM sometime in the year. Other than that I'm hardware'd out.

So far it appears that the physx card is being beat out by keyboards, headphones/speakers, mice and well everything else. I wonder if that thing will ever become mainstream.
