i can say im buying a zune tomorw tho, and going to see batman. then im savign for the rest of teh summer with a litle bit of spending cash on the side from my other job.

edit also last thign i said i was going to buy was a 9800gtx, and yea i never got it because my house burnt down teh night i whent to order. and my dad couldnt work for a month due to sereous burns on his hands and face 3rd degree behind his ear and on his cheek, and 2nd degree on most of his face and arms, hes healed up nicely and only has a bit of scaring on oen cheek that isnt very noticeble, we where very lucky but ya for that month i was supporting the family.

Didn't you just get an 8800GTS?

If you really think you need to upgrade, a GTX 260 will do you well, and you could
get it for a nice price by selling that 8800GTS.


And you should stop getting verns hopes up, you told him you were
sending him the 7950gt a long time ago.
