Remember kids, if you happen to find yourself upside down and on fire, you've just discovered the meaning of "too fast".

I am now have in my possession the first Microsoft product that I've been completely satisfied with.  The Microsoft Multimedia Keyboard.

My Fujitsu was getting a bit decrepid (no offence Fujitsu), and the brand new MS was $10.  For a keyboard . . . it rocks!

I bought a Geforce 2 GTS and a 13.5 Gb ATA66 HD from Zeus. The GFX card went into my Duron 800, 256mb SD RAM, 15 Gb machine.  - It will get upgraded some more in the near future.
The HD I plan to Raid in my 1400 T-bird, 256Mb DDR RAM, 20 GB machine.

P.S. The Duron Runs 98 and I run XP on the T-bird

I swapped out my Pioneer 116 16x40x DVD ROM, for a LG 8161B 16x48x DVD ROM.  My Pioneer didn't have Digital Audio Out.

I also snagged an Audigy 2.  It definately has a fuller richer sound than the Live 5.1, and it has a heftier processor for EAX and 3D sound in games.

After listening to a DVD-Audio DVD (Thanks D-Man), I can say that it definately sounds better.  If I has some kick butt speakers it would be that much better.

I swapped out my Samsung 750S monitor for a Samsung 753DF.  It's the same size, but has a flat picture tube and a finer dot pitch.  I really like it.  It's very crisp.

Not much of an upgrade, but it's an upgrade! ;)

Well I just got a ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128MB from work.  So I am doing a few benchmarks and I'll post em up on my site when its all done.  But I ended up just trading in my 9700 pro for it.  Straight across exchange isn't too bad  :)

I just purchased a USR 22Mbps Wireless Router w/ps.  I've moved my rig out to the garage.  I'm running 28°C right now, at 2200+ speeds. . . it's much cooler out here.

I just sold my wife's (Xena's) rig, to our newest forum member, Cypher, and picked up Xena a ECS Laptop.  It's sporting a 2.4B GHz, 512MB DDR, and a Radeon 9000M.  It pretty much rocks the mobile world!  Now, if only she would let me play around on it. . . seriously.

On Tuesday I should be receiving a Western Digital Raptor SATA hard drive.  I would like to do two of em but with the SATA RAID controller built on my board has problems with RAID.  A lot of people have complained that the data gets corrupted with using the RAID.  But at 10K RPM who needs RAID  :D   Just Joking, you can always use RAID.  It'll be interesting to see how it compares to my regular Maxtor IDE drive.  I'll let everyone know how it turns out.

I picked up a BenQ FP767 17" LCD Moniter, its got 16ms refresh so ghosting shouldn't be a problem for games. So far, I am SUPER happy with it

It's a little late, but I got a Sapphire 9700np for my main rig.   I also picked up a used DVD 10x drive for my other computer to replace the 4x that was in it.

I picked up a Logitech MX 500.  It is definately an improvement over the Dual Optical - which was a pretty sweet mouse too.

Also picked up a pair of 120gb WD 8 mg Cache drives, they should give me plenty of space
