    A Radeon 3800 (the new DX 10.1 series) in a year or a year and a half, when it will be $200.

    Crysis in Very High kills my PC at 10 FPS

    I'm saving up for an 8800GTS graphic card, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2GHz and a really sweet CPU cooler so I can overclock the 2.2GHz to 3.0GHz in preparation to play Crysis

    Its going to be really expensive though [​IMG]

    I'm hoping to get a fresh macbook. I just sent my ibook in and it's under warranty and basically unfixable, so unless they have spare parts for a 3 year old computer laying around, should be getting a fresh macbook. Wouldn't mind some more ram for my powermac though, sitting at 2.5gb on a dual 2.7ghz, stuff never comes down in price though.

    well, the last thing I updated was my video card... but next I want to update my ram because I only have 1GB... I dont know HOW much ram I will get when I do buy some though.

    I also want to get a media card reader for the empty floppy drive area...

    after those 2 things, there isnt really anything else I might want. (if anyone knows of any cool addons, let me know ^^; )

    Think about an 8800GT. It's about $100 less and out performs the GTS.

    I just want a whole new computer. You know how many people compare their rigs to 'beasts'? Well, mine is a bear, but it's more of a fat lazy bear. Maybe like Yogi bear. No, try Bobo.

    i need to upgrade my whole computer but I figure I can use both of mine in the new one. In fact as soon as I get the 500GB HD for Christmas I am whacking openSUSE on it. i also found out I am getting network adapter Thursday. Yay [​IMG]

    You'd be surprised at how many parts they can still replace, unfortunately.
    I hope for you that they replace the iBook with a Macbook, ofcourse, but last year when I sent in my old iPod, I hoped they were going to replace it with a new Video ipod.

    That didn't happen [​IMG] I got a brand new old ipod lol.

    I'll be buying a nice new laptop, in the $1500-2000 range, sometime this month. I'm browsing around now.

    For $1500-$2000, you can get an awesome laptop.

    Myself, I'm saving some $ to get a LCD monitor. Im still using an old 19" KDS CRT i got 7 years ago.

    Don't get an 8800GTS. The GT is about the same price as the 320MB and is Twice as good.

    Fixed that. a Laptop will be DECENT but no way will it be Awesome. an Awesome laptop is one that can get at least get high or medium in crysis and a 2k laptop can't.
