well she got me a Z-chip and a DD gf4 W/B a new MOBO and an XP2800 cpu. anyhow I got the blocks in yesturday. first thing I did was LAP the hell out of the from 800 to 2500 sweet looking. what a pain in the butt it was to lap the GF4 W/B because of the raised part wooo that took me some time.
well I would take some pics but my wife made me wrap everything and put it under the tree. this way I have something to open on X-Mass day. now you KNOW its KILLING me to know I have this stuff within 10ft of me and I cant use it :mad: AAAAAH.
4 more days :D
I'll take pics of the new setup after X-mass and show you guys how it looks.

I'm not making fun but I'm laughing about the list with the stars. When I was young I used to write my xmas list and put stars next to the gifts I used to want the most. The more stars the better the gift. Those were the days:)
