Sounds good....
Here's my Christmas list...... NOTE ALL PRICES IN AUD

Xpertvision X800GTO 256mb... $210

ZALMAN VF900 VGA cooler... $60

PIONEER DVR - 111D 16 X DUAL LAYER DVD WRITER... $50

CREATIVE SOUND BLASTER X - FI XTREME MUSIC 7.1 CHANNEL... $200 (optional)

Do ya rekon it's worth getting the X-Fi Xtreme Music, I mainly listen to all my games through a headset. Would the sound quality depend on the quality of the card, the quality of the headset or a bit of both?

Sorry.. not trying to hijack your thread.

my "wish list" not "what i'll get list", even though they're not high expectations:

Asus P5V-VM DH
Pentium D 805
512MB generic DDR2
Aspire X-Qpack

enough to build a pc to hit the road with plan on upgrading components over time, namely the processor to a Core 2 and the memory to 1GB DDR2 or more
