    how about a... umm... can't really think of anything... maybe an... mp3 player? I see you don't have one listed on your first post. or maybe a PMP. Maybe get an archos.

    Have you thought about building a custom PC? With an $800 limit, it's very easy to make something that can run most games pretty well. Plus it's easy to learn if you don't know how to build one.

    I second (actually counting the posts, I third [​IMG]) building a gaming PC.
    You can salvage parts like Power Supply, RAM, Casing, DVD-ROM and such, to make even more out of your budget.

    Some monster graphic cards came out recently and other cards price dropped, this is a good time to get a budget (and yet still high spec) gaming PC.

    If you're looking for something that's truly a "must-have" gadget, wouldn't you have heard about it already? [​IMG]

    Note:- a more powerful monster graphics card + bigger hard drive/s = draw more WATTS = possible BLOWN OLD RECYCLED PSU!


    maby best to buy a new PSU something like a 500 or more WATT psu to cope with any extra power hungry hardware you may wish to add to your custom machine [​IMG]

    additional to upgrading hard drives may also need SATA drive/power connectors either on the new PSU or from adding extra cabling thats plugged into your motherboard to connect your new drive/s [​IMG]

    The model after the 605, which will probably have 3G.
