a Z8 or one of the new Z4's would be sweet... mmm BMW *drool*

realistically, that new SONY DVD+-R +-RW drive (burns DVDR+, -, DVDRW+, -)... looks sweet but not in my budget at $350...

or an SLK-800
or ABIT NFORCE2 board
or NV30
or 120 gig 8mb cache HD (or two)
or money to pay for the LCD I just bought ;-)
...and the list goes on and on

Z8 ? isn't that the smaller Beemer?
(I opted for a 2000 Mustang;) )

Hmmmm....
A good PS is always a must.
For O/C'n, good memory is a must.

H20...too expensive. (I got mine for $40.oo)
That's the only reason I bought it.:D

I'd have to go with some really good memory.

:cool:

found out why rams prices went way higher than normal and not just higher than normal. that whole strike thing on the docks over on the west coast apparently screwed a bunch of suppliers.
i wanted ram but i dunno. not gonna upgrade my ram till i can get some corsair. untill then i think water cooling. i dunno. got it to the point where i can do it for about 100.yeah the beemer would be nice but nahhhh..
maybe some better air cooling. i still need some artic silver.guy told me to watch out for hardrive prices .. they are kinda creepin up too.so now may be the time to get some raid.. too much to buy

I'm asking for a new 17 inch monitor. I've been using the same trinitron 15in model for the past 5 years (it's still producing a nice crisp image).

Watercooling, mabey a new CRT moniter, and a few weeks after the NV30 comes out, my dad is gonna get a new comp, and get a Radeon 9700, and he might swap that with my ti 4600.

And he actually agreed on this transaction. *cough*Starfoxer*cough*
