Nope sure havent, I leave that high powered gaming stuff to you young guys/gals, I prettymuch gave up on it,I may return to it at some point, but spending $1k + for a wintendo system just doesnt sit well with me.

Guess the wifey is now balancing the budget in the house eh my friend? .. *swish* *swish* (sound of a whip) ..

But, yeah, I can understand where u are coming from man. I am also very hesistant in spending more than $200 USD on any single item - so nothing better than a 6600 GT for me .. Things get outdated way too fast.. But, I figure, being a computer engineering student, the least I could have is a somewhat decent computer :-\..
