    Waiting for affordable sb-e parts to replace my 1st gen i7 system. Also waiting for daddy kepler to come out and make 680s hit the used market. Could be a good year if I find the funds!

    And of course, I'm going to keep crunching, and help find a cure for cancer!

    I will get a GTX 660 and I might Raid 0 with another SSD. Also my PSU is old - i might upgrade to a Corsair one.

    I'll probably just grab a new graphics card when the AMD 8xxx series or NV 7xx series come out.

    I may pick up a 3770k if i find a good deal on one, but i doubt it, too many other things to buy this year.

    Oh, and new 120mm case and radiator fans, a few of mine sound a little unhealthy atm.

    - Upgrade my HD6850 with something new (and waiting for a full system upgrade :D my q6600 still rules)
    - Upgrade the whole system (Haswell or something from my old love AMD?)
    - Change work with something more satisfying :D

    Happy 2013 TPU!

    From a tech point of view not much. If there's some money I'm thinking of a haswell i3 for the second rig, maybe a GTX770. As it stands right now 2013 doesn't look so good from a financial point of view for me so I just got myself a Nexus 7 until there was still some money left in the bank.

    From a non tech point: Reach the end of 2013 knowing how to speak/read Japanese with some ease.

    From a tech point: Well, I bought this rig just a few days before 2013 (couldn't be any happier with it), but I hope to get more goodies throughout the year if funds allow me so! :D

    Happy 2013 to everyone, hope you guys had a nice 2012 and have a better 2013! :toast:

    When did you start? Because I don't think you'll do that if you start now unless you work really hard and is a language savant.

    I started a few months ago and I have ease in learning new languages. I listen alot to Japanese music and try to make out the words while listening. So regarding accent that'll help quite a bit too.

    I already know how to read hiragana without problems, katakana, I still have trouble, since I didn't dedicate too much time into it yet and I know a handful of Kanji.

    But by speaking or understanding I don't mean fluently of course as that would be impossible, but enough for more than just basic talk. :D Of course, having someone else to talk to or practice would be golden, but I'll have to manage by myself.:eek:

    Might be setting the bar a bit too high, but if I can work it out nicely, I might undertake JLPT in the future.
