    We should all put what we paid and a hundred pages later we'll total it up.

    think i spent 189.99$ on my 5770, but i wanted the XXX edition to ensure i got a good GPU.


    little yah know, 960Mhz Core/ 1330mhz memory over the 800/1100 standard. performs like a champ. (hangs, and sometimes beats bud's GTX260)

    $987 for the laptop
    $298 for the 8GB RAM
    $109 for the 750GB HD

    Then in a couple of years when I sell it, it'll still be worth a lot.

    Sweet. Mine was $899 + tax. 4GB ram, 250Gb hdd. I've got plenty of externals, and the server, so space on the laptop itself isn't an issue.

    So far I've played:

    TF2
    Zeno Clash
    CSS
    COD4:MW
    BF:BC2

    without issues. All games default to high settings aside from BC2 which is medium, but plays quite well enough for me. It's no quad/gtx280, but for under 65W it will be nice to actually be able to use it this summer instead of the huge increase in apartment heat the other rig puts out. Oh, and I played TF2 for 2 hours on battery and still had charge left over to browse the internet for longer than I needed. It's overclocked to 1.6GHz, and I'm still impressed with the battery life right now.

    With the few hundred I got for my bday, all I have to come up with is ~700 to cover the cost, which should be pretty easy with 2 22" screens, a quad gaming rig, and a macbook to sell.


    More directly OT: I got a new desk chair at the thrift store for $25. It's no super awesomesauce one but quite a bit better than the one I was using.
