See, its not about the upgrade so much but how many PC's I have... I bought 3 PC's for myself within the past year (not counting the other 2 PC's I have from years before). I have my machine in my sig, I have my Acer Netbook, and my Emachines server, not to mention a 20 inch monitor I bought because of the emachines server beside my 28 inch monitor and the 250 dollar laser printer for network printing and 300 dollar inkjet printer for personal photo printing I bought within the past year. Then I have the 250 GB 2.5'' portable harddrive being used on the emachines for software RAID 1 and my 100 dollar printserver\switch combo. Lets not also forget about the PS3 sitting under my server accessorized like a madman and the PC 50 games, 15 PS3 games and counting (bought all within the past year). I could keep going but I rather not bore you guys. All this buying forces me to postpone my uber upgrade so I can finally play Fallout 3 maxed lag free.

Its a curse working at Best Buy You have all this technology teasing you and saying "Buy me... BUY ME!!!!" I cry when I look at the Pioneer 60'' plasma at our front door.
