    I really cannot figure out what I want to get. I'm getting some money (probably $500) for free spending on myself. I kind of want to buy some storage space, like maybe 2 2tb drives and maybe a 1tb internal for my ps3. I just recently got another Wii so I kind of want to have at least 1tb on it.

    Stuff I currently have so don't suggest it:
    DSiXL---------\
    DS Lite--------| Have enough flash carts except for scds2 was thinking about that too...
    Phat DS------/
    PSP
    PS3
    Xbox 360
    Wii (2x) with plenty of controllers and accessories
    PC (intel core2quad q6600 2.4ghz, 2gb ram, around 3tbs storage)
    laptop (amd dual core 1.9ghz, 2gb ram, 160gb hdd)

    my laptop is good for what i need it for, i could use a new one, but mine serves its purpose so that would be a no for a new laptop, but i was thinking of getting new internals on the desktop, and tigerdirect got a sweet deal on a 6 core amd barebones kit, about $400.

    I could use some new duds. All my clothes are many years old, but still in good shape.

    Give me some suggestions on what I should buy, please be realistic, I honestly will take opinions as I cannot figure out what to do. Someone give me a gung ho idea to go with.

    I'd go for storage space, maybe preorder a ps vita or a buy a 3ds with the left over money, though I don't know how much a 1 TB drive would cost.

    A 1TB external can be bought for under $100. Not sure what an internal goes for. I would imagine that it would go for around the same price.

    Does anyone save for the bigger things (car, land/house) anymore?

    You can buy the 'sweet deal on a 6 core amd barebones kit' or if it is that you really see it necessary the storage space, otherwise just dunk everything in the bank for future consoles/game/expenses.

    scds2 would be good like you where thinking. Since you don't really want or have enough money for a new computer that would be worth while to get anyways I would suggest an upgrade to your ram on both of the computers you have to at least 4 gigs total. As for clothes, hell yeah, clothes make the man right get some new gear for summer. If It was me getting the 500 though I would buy this sweet guitar I been eye balling but won't have enough to buy. I guess my best advice would be, buy something that helps you become more expressive and creative. Gaming is cool but don't let gaming become your everything. I think I would also buy a mountain bike for exercise and just cruse'n around on even though I have a car but trying to use It less often when I can.

    Problems of a spoiled kid.

    Seriously, if you don't need anything, you should save it. Or better yet donate.

    whoa i am far from spoiled and far from a kid. i work 40 hours a week to earn what i've got. this $500 will not hurt me financially if i spend it.

    no flames, just answers.

    Ah OK, then I'll take it back.

    But "I really cannot figure out what I want to get." sounds very strange..

    Make a vacation, invite friends to a great dinner, or still save it...
