    I got some guitar strings, a livingroom full of wrapping paper bits and toys all over, and a wonderful morning with my family. ;) Couldn't ask for more.

    ExcaliburPC. I had a 15% off coupon that made the purchase justifiable.. though it's still damn expensive.

    I got some shirts and a nice scarf for Christmas. The card is something I'm purchasing for myself. :)

    A bridge camera, some smellies and nik naks and treated myself to some new clothes and a coat, had a great day with the family and seeing the kids happy was the highlight of my day, then we did lunch, turkey with all the trimmings, followed by a vodka and coke and an afternoon nap. On the vodka again now :toast:

    Me and my son got a pair of cans, Sennheiser HD518, which we share. I keep finding him things to do, preferably out of the house, so I can enjoy my music.

    And forgot, 1 pair of 2 Gigs Kingston HyperX just before Christmas. BF3 runs smooth as butter now all maxed out.

    Finally got to play with my 580 3gb. Doubled my frame rate in crysis 1, due almost entirely to texture mods. Didn't realize just how short I was running. Using over 2 Gbs of vram now.

    Oddly temps and noise rival my twin frozr II. Guess the single slot bracket and paste job helped, and now my other temps are down cause hot air isn't getting dumped into the case.

    Fallout 3 GOTY, Cyborg R.A.T. 7, LG Optimus, and pretty much my whole system in the specs was slightly Christmas related even though I built it in September :laugh: still crossing my fingers to try and get the Cyborg V7 keyboard next.

    Nothing, i don't give presents and won't accept them from even my family.

    I did manage to get myself a few things this year though, 2x4gb Corsair vengeance 1600 ram, asus xonar dx, logitech k360 keyboard, serious sam bfe plus a couple of other games from steam.

    Maybe its because i'm an old fart but i just don't fall into the commercialism that xmas has become.

    I'm not a baah humbug person and I do understand if others enjoy it that is fine though.
