I just ordered everything in this thread of mine, which=a massive beast of a gaming rig that I should be able to not upgrade for at least a year.....

New drum cases for my drums, because my band ( plays out constantly and my nice pearl elx kit gets all kinds of dings with the bags I use now, plus a hardware case for my rack and stands. Lots of shirts, gift cards, family guy dvd's and awesome Stewie slippers!! Also, a bass fishing trip on Lake Cumberland planned for August with private cabin and bass boat....OY YEAH!!! My girl truely owns all other girls....for soooo many reasons on top of the fact that she is excited for me to get all my comp parts and put them together to have an incredible gaming beast. We are in pharmacy school and mad busy all the time so she knows I really enjoy my gaming when I can find the time. Anyway, Merry Christmas and happy new year to everyone on the forum. You guys are great and always help me out when something on my comp is messes up. And if anyone lives in columbus, come out to the show on Saturday!!!!!
