Nothing really. Prowler is healthy and I'm biding my time as graphics are going through such a surge of change, my 68GT still beats a 7600GT even when its had the snot clocked out of it, so HA I say, HA! :D Santa is bringing me a really cool keyboard and mouse tho :)

Santa's not actually bringing me any computer parts, but I'd love to have a beefy new OCZ power supply, a 2GB kit of (Mushkin) DDR400, a dual core processor, an X1950XTX, and then a nice Apple Cinema monitor (the one with the insane resolutions) to compliment everything :).

oh please dear god no dont get the AN8. i had an AN8 fatality sli and it was the biggest pos ive ever owned, mysterious shutdowns, random reboots, memory command rates not working properly.. you get the picture. what makes it worse is that it wasnt just my board.. EVERY board was like it, literally everyone i spoke to had the same issues. i tell ya, the techs that put the hardware into creating that thing must of cried themselves to sleep for a month with the piss poor bios that the bios department not only shakily put together, but failed to deliver any real fixes\improvements\proper enthusiast options for.
