I dont know about you guys but I'm stoked for the lower budget models to come out.
With them usually comes the single-slot coolers, which is all that will fit into my Shuttle XPC case, and all that will fit into my college-student-without-a-job budget.

I dunno about all that. I have a job, but it isn't a good one because they take a lot out on taxes (so I get ****ed over with every paycheck), but in january, I get my Income tax returns. I usually get about $5000, and out of it, I'll have about $1400 to build my new system with. Getting an 8800GTX, an E6300 Conroe, 2 GB of OCZ DDR2 800 RAM, and I think it'll last a while. I'm hoping to max out crysis, but until then, Oblivion will just have to do.

Here\'s a quote I saw once on a /b/ forum a while back, I think it\'s funny:

I\'ve been thinking of \"Heck\" lately. If it even exists, it\'s got to be a much nicer place than \"Heaven\". I mean... all the gay men are down there. You KNOW it\'s well decorated.

Note that I do not in any way condone homophobia or am in any way homophobic. I merely thought that it was clever.
