    i think i suffer from this the worst.

    i have PCADHD

    my mailman hates me because i get 15-40 new things a week :D

    i have stuff today that i wont have tomorrow and dont even get me started on what i'll have this time next week ... . it will most likely be something completely different... then i'll sell it and get something else.


    seems to be an ever ongoing processes.

    im never happy

    Find something else to build. I'm happy with my PC at the moment so I'm toying with my car and doing some photography.

    I guess it depends on the size of your lenses.

    I do this too. Im pretty bored with my I7 and im wating for golftown. Ill hold on to the GX2's a tad longer then after golftown i might go dual 295's or fermi....idk though but i do know im tired of it. I know the system too well Theirs nothing left to explore. I dont dissassemble it. However after awhile i do break the OS on purpose so I can purposely reformat and install everything again.

    I was actually thinking of building my own little MOSIX cluster, being in the university and also the lab where it was (and is still being) developed.

    How bad is my PRD judging from that ?

    Bose is crap. Buy a good set of Sennheisers or Grado cans.

    You also need a sound card, I suggest anything Auzentech, perhaps a Forte. With a Forte and a good set of Senns or Grados, the sound quality will blow your mind.

    I had a set of Sennheisers. They are why I went with the Bose. ;) Ive been looking at sound cards but I only have PCI-E x1 slots open and I honestly have no idea what I'm looking at when it comes to sound cards.

    Auzentech X-Fi Forte. Refurb for $90 on their site. I just bought one 15minutes ago. lol.

    As for headphones, you didn't have the right Senns. Cheap headphones are cheap headphones, regardless of brand.

    my 5's scroll wheel 'twitches' upwards sometimes. annoying.

    And my saitek... well, its worn out. some of the keys barely work, and i've rubbed the paint off from many years of use.

    Func 1030 archetype = best mousepad :D

    oh good, you can get me my new G500 + g11 then

    take old parts from early 2000's or late 90s and do a retro build.
