the bad thing about lcds, other than the halfassed blacks, is you have to play your games at such a resolution every time. You don't have to, but I'm rather picky so... I don't want even a slight penalty lol. It feeds the gpu buisness like candy.

But it's INCREDIBLY liberating to have something that small and that BRIGHT!! I hate the touchscreen buttons of today though :( hopefully that's a fad that will disappear soon. I find that ~24 inches is about as big as I wanna get without having 2+ monitors.
If you do not think so... you will DIE

Yay - no whole new system... just a $135 circuit card that handles the defrost cycle management.

I bought myself a set of turtle beach Ear Force X41s last night. The $200 better be worth it. ._.

I think you wasted 100$ more than needed...the X31 and X41's dont have many differences, plus you'll burn threw batteries like a corner prostitute.

I got myself Astro-A40's i can't be speaking about burning threw cash :awesome:

Hit up newegg for a few things....
1 x 6" TOSLINK cable (for my new sound bar speaker thingy)
3 x 2TB|WD WD20EARS w/SATA3.0 cables (for my new file server)
1 x 2Gx2|OCZ OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK (My main system was only running 2GB of DDR3 1600 RAM and the price was right)

I really don't know if I have any way to power those drives right now - I need to pick up the case/power supply from my father to see if the thing even fits my old C2D mobo. If it's all good I'll pick up some molex -> SATA power converters.
