    Never say never

    Same here except the odd few i do still enjoy Newcastle brown ( UK not sure if you can get it in US ). A few others but normally irish stuff..

    I think as you get older your options change a lot as i use to drink beer lager but now it's just spirits if i do.

    Try heroin instead. You don't get a hangover (although you might get some slight constipation...).

    Save it, along with a little or a lot more.
    And, get something for your rig you always wanted... but, thought to be extravagant or over the top!

    I know that I am new here, but Cougar fans are tied for first IME, next to Delta PWM's (+ high power fan controller). I have used Cougar fans on a dozen PC's built for friends and to my knowledge, not one has failed. Spend $1-2 at Home Depot for some small rubber bushings to mount between the fan and case and they are the quietest fan with a high cfm/static pressure (that I have used).

    If I only had $50 for an upgrade, I would probably buy a new game and upgrade my game collection ... then save up more for a hardware upgrade.

    Just my 2 cents !

    ohhhhhhhhhhhhh I have an idea...

    I've bought this stuff and it's amazing, have it on my mouse right now. :) Real cool stuff if you're kind of a hobbyist like myself. :eek:

    and it's much less than $50 too

    A: A 6-pack of beer (someone can buy it for you.)
    B: A cheap video game.
    C: Some 22 AWG wire.
    D: Various assorted resistors.
    E: A soldering iron.

    Then find some documentation and volt-mod that GTX 470 of yours if you're considering getting a Kepler in the near future.

    I have a really good idea. How about you don't spend it and put it aside with any other small bits of money you debate spending, and actually get something that will benefit your rig? :cool:
