Default Waiting patiently

Everything is on order. The last thing was the video card which was tearing me up inside, gts or gtx? I opted for the GTX and I'm sure I wont feel bad about it in the morning. I'll let you guys know how everything goes when it all gets here. I would place the time of arrival at around Wednesday.

Gigabyte P35 DS3R
e6750
Tuniq
2gig gSkill HZ 800mhz
EVGA 8800GTX
320gb Seagate 7200.1 SATA
520HX Corsair PSU
Thermaltake Armor Full Black w/25cm fan
226bw Samsung 22" S-panel

I also sprung for a razer tarantula keyboard and death adder mouse. I <3 the mouse. The keyboard feels almost like a laptop with the close keys and short depression height. But I still like it, I'm coming from an old split keys microsoft natural keyboard.

I can't wait to oc the ************************ out of this thing.
I plan to paint the inside of the case black (throw back to b1g), lap the heatsink and the processor, and throw my old computer inside a fishtank with some mineral or silicone oil. Should be an eventful week.
