    I've made no purchases (except for the odd steam game) recently. However I'm planning to buy some stuff from sparkfun after the 15th of Feb (depending on my bank balance) so I can grab some items for my project including some long distance (1mi/1.6km) Xbee wireless serial links, a GPS module (this is in doubt) and maybe some other things to experiment with again depending on my bank balance.

    Last week:
    XFX HD 6870 1gb
    Patriot 2x4GB DDR3-2000

    These upgrades didn't fix my desktop issues. As it turned out, the PCIe slots/bus is/are dead. Instead of trying to find a decent 775 replacement, I upgraded my 3-4yo system...

    Earlier today:
    ASUS Crosshair IV Formula
    OEM AMD 1090T Black
    Thermaltake Frio
    Kingston SSDNow V+100 SVP100S2/64G
    OEM 64bit Win7 Home for TRIM support

    I'm hoping to get it Monday...but Tuesday is more likely. I'm concentrating as hard as I can in an effort to will it to come Monday though. <--This guy also now owns my soul.
    Now I'm just waiting on AC: Brotherhood, Crysis 2, Red Faction: Armageddon, Battlefield 3, Mechwarrior, Thief 4, and Skyrim in addition to half a dozen smaller games...
    I'll procrastinate tomorrow.

    I got a R.A.T. 5 recently, and I love it. Other than that, I have not bought any PC stuff for about a year and a half.

    PC Stuff? Nothing recently. I am saving up for an i7 build though.

    My latest purchases have all been for my kitchen. All of it.

    I know what you mean...my most recent 'purchase' was the oil company unexpectedly delivering $500 worth of heating oil two weeks ago.. Knocked out my savings for at least a month. ..on that note, off to home to build a wooden box to go over my filler port. -_^

    I'm hoping that there is still a tank at least. I have heard of this happening after the tank has been removed.

    me too, the people who rip out the old tanks forget to remove the filler pipes and you get a basement full of oil

    was told it happens at least once a year.

    What case are you using - I have to ask cos the Frio I reviewed is a BIG cooler and only fits in about 3 of the cases I have here at home - just too tall for most of them.... Awesome choice for a cooler by the way - I love it - but small it aint :p
