Although not specifically computer related, I've recently jumped on the HD bandwagon with a 40" Prima HDTV, a Toshiba HD-DVD Player (I know it's dying but it comes with 7 free HD-DVD movies valued at $190) and a Bell HD Satellite TV.

It's amazing how much better things look. . .  HD all the way!

Just purchased a BFG 8800GTS 512MB OC.  It's a pretty substaintial upgrade from my HD2900XT.  Of course it draws less power, so it's quieter and cooler.  Did a little BioShock gaming on it thus far and no complaints.  Also tried a few minutes of Crysis and all I have to say is, wow. 
Q6600 @ 3.2GHz (8X400)/ P5Q Deluxe / OCZ PC2 6400 Platinum XTC Rev.2 Dual Channel 4X1024 / 320GB Seagate SATAII / 8800GTS 512MB /  Audigy 2 / PC P&C Silencer 750 / ThermalRight Ultra-120 Extreme / Thermaltake Xaser 5000

I got a 8800GT compliments of FutureShop to replace a dead X1900GT.  It's a whole bunch of an upgrade . . . I think.  I haven't got time to put it in yet. . .

Picked up an xbox 360 external hd-dvd player for $42 from Best Buy yesterday and got a free $50 gift card with it. Best Buy Canada is having a promotion for customers who purchased a Toshiba or MS Xbox 360 hd-dvd player after Jan.2007.

Actually saw you playing online today - it has been a while, but I jumped on as the user "JoeFace" profile created by Joe at LANtabulouos.  Fun stuff, buy your 4870X2 owned me!
