man it sucks to sell your baby's to have to pay for other things.... I know it makes me sad, my computer (carmen) I hate to take things from her.....

To get back on topic some I am thinking of using the step up program on the 9000 series if I can, should be able to.

im really hoping the 9800's will be out before i buy because then i can get one (or two) of them then if a version like what happened in the 8 series comes out i wont be stuck with the ones i buy i can just step up. you know what i mean. it kinda blows when that happens.
