Two 200gb SATA drives when I have the cash... I'm getting quite desperate for space

Other than that, I'm waiting for some decent processors and video cards to come on the market before another major upgrade... I'm not exactly impressed with what's available at the moment

I don't use CDs anymore, I just rip them and mount them as virtual drives... and I have quite a formidable collection of games Considering most of them are over 600mb, that can add up pretty fast.. factor in the mp3 collection and the divx movie collection, and there's 200gb down the drain.

I can tell you what I JUST bought;

Pentium 4 3.0GHz 800 MHz FSB with Hyperthreading
Asus P4C800-E Deluxe motherboard
2 Gigabytes of PC3700 DDR RAM (2x1024MB Corsair TwinX matched pairs)
Thermaltake Xaser III case

Next thing on the list is an Iiyama AS4821DT 19" LCD monitor

The BEST thing I bought lately was my steering wheel (!) a Logitech Momo Force - great product, much better build quality then any of the other brands. It has renewed my enthusiasm for driving games

Worst purchase was my D-Link wireless setup. I have NEVER had a product cause such severe problems with my system. It's working now, but by God, I could have done without the stress. D-Link's technical support is non-existent.

Mine will hopefully, and i better start saving for it now. But i really desire a dual processor system. Probably Opeteron, unless something is better out by the time i save up the money. which is very likely. And i would like to replace my monitor with a projector. Be nice to have a 100inch screen.
