    Ive got $100 to spend as it was given to me for my birthday. Only problem is with my type of rig, I have no idea what to spend it on.

    Can I get some ideas from the TPU community?

    Thanks!

    Thought about lighting but my case is bright enough for me. Every fan in it is blue.

    I have a Micrsoft Habu that is about a year old and going strong and I also have a Logitech G11 keyboard. Im good there.

    Doesnt even have to be for my computer.

    I play World of Warcraft. :banghead: I will be getting DoW2 and FEAR 2 when they are released.

    umm... can't see anything really upgradable on your rig. maybe get some good cooling for that 9800gtx? I myself use the stock dual-slot cooler on my 9800gt and it doesn't go over 80c... yet... hopefully it stays under 90 in the summer, heh

    Yeah I would imagine getting a vga cooler would be a good move cause the video cooler is generally a very hot component compared to the rest of a computer... should probably improve overall temps

    Temps now are fine for it. I put the fan on 75% in Precision and i can barely hear it. I could put it on 100% if i wanted because whenever I am at my computer my headphones are blasting something so i cant hear noise anyway other than whats in my head.

    @Hat,

    Im sitting here listening to this song and it happens to be the lyrics in your sig. :D
