Well my gf got me an early present...a razer copperhead mouse to replace my MX Revolution. I think there's Gears of War under the tree, and otherwise I got money :D. I spoiled myself and got a G15 and I will be getting a new motherboard soon, and Ill use christmas as an excuse :D

With the money I get for Christmas and my B-day, I will either get a new mobo or an 8800GT. Mobo will be a DFI LP x38 board.

8800GT, which I'll be buying with the money i've earned during holidays.

And some logitech Z-2300 speakers. I have no idea what else. Probably some wii/pc games I already have :|

Oh, and I got a black replacement shell for the wii. Don't see how people can stand white. *shudder*

I'll be getting a new computer chair, as the washing basket is becoming a tad impractical.

Aside from that I've asked for Kane and Lynch, a Bluetooth headset and books/music. I'm looking forward to the dinner - it's gonna be great, plus I've got a little second cousin I've yet to see and I've gotten him a giant teddy bear - wee guy isn't even a year old yet, so that will be an experience.

Afterwards I'm off to my aunt and uncles to play guitar with my cousins and stay the night; no doubt getting drunk in the process. Then sadly, I've got to go to work on Boxing Day. Ach, well!

I'm probably getting Call of Duty 4 and I'm hopefully gonna put some money towards a new build within the next few months. I asked my parents if they would buy me a Logitech G15 keyboard and G5 mouse, so hopefully I'll have those to go along with my new build that I'll do in February or whenever those Wolfdale chips are available.

Cash. I am saving it in my bank account. I am quite happy with the performance therefore no new build for a while...

I'm looking at cash, which will probably go towards buying ...

- an Athlon X2 or a dual-core Opteron
- another 2GB of DDR500 if I can find it ... or just 4GB of new memory maybe
- a new keyboard ... still haven't found one I like on the cheap
- a new heatsink with some diamond paste 8)
- some UV cold cathodes for sex appeal

I just bought an 8800GT 512MB. Cost was $279 and I overnighted it with rush processing for an additional $26. Should be here this week. :D

Good card, but I don't understand the logic. You already had an 8800GTS...

Dad is getting the 8800GTS. Besides, the 8800GTS is faster anyway. :)

Why until you get a new video card? Your video card is more than suffice. My brother runs it just fine with a 7600GT and plays Oblivion.

Sure, I "could" install Vista now, but the only reason for me to do so is DX10... I don't have a DX10 card.

Maybe it was just me, but the way you worded it sounded like your video card wouldnt work. ;)
