I need to make a list for christmas stuff I might want(hey, my mom asked me 4 one so dont call me greedy:D I'm building puters 4 ppl for christmas).
Can't be too expensive, little do-hickies or upgrades. I just need ideas.
First on list:
Linux RedHat7.3 Bible:D lol, mom was thrilled when i told her I wanted a Bible.

btw, i'm 15 and dont have a car, so no car mod ideas.

$100 for watercooling? That's pretty good. When I was doing some watercooling pricing I was a little over that. Around $140, I think. Anyways, I put the watercooling idea on hold because of some reasons. Mainly because I'm going to save this hundred dollars towards the next computer I build (probably at end of next summer), and also I'm really rigging up my air-cooling to the quietest and best performance. I don't really have a temp problem, either.

As for Christmas, I would ask for a CD-RW, but I don't know what you have already. Any drives you want/need? How much memory do you have? Get another 256meg if you need it...

~70 water cooling for me

but water cooling isn't a great gift, it's more of a put together yourself after saving up and going ot the junk yard type of present

If I were you, I'd go for books! everybody loves books, lol

I think I would ask for an unlocking kit (or supplies if no kit) and I would also ask for AS3 because I'm going to have to get the compound off of the CPU and lap the heatsink, I might as well go with a better compound than I currently have (AS2). Hmm...I think I'm going to ask for these... :D

You pretty much have all you need without starting on a new system. Computerwise anyways.
