I'm pretty happy with my current hardware and peripherals. If I had to choose, I'd say a couple of 5870's , but then in a few months when the prices fall, I'd be kicking myself.

I am thinking of asking Santa for one of these:D

Im looking at hopefully getting Win 7 Pro 64 bit and maybe 8gb of memory to go with it in my rig, I did want a 5850 but the prices got higher recently and I think ima sit and wait till the new year when team Green comes out with Fermi and a price battle ensues....

Been asking for a 250GB Slim PS3, but I'm most likely going to get a random assortment of things like I do every year. I mean, I'm glad that they buy me things, but why spend the same amount on things I didn't ask for instead of spending it on what I want?
