I've swapped out my old PowMax 650VA UPS for a 1400VA UPS.  I am now able to plug my entire setup, (monitors, speakers, tower, pump & peripherals) in to protect them.  It seems to work well so far.

Not so much computer related exactly, but I picked up a Sony Mini DV HandyCAM.  One word really. . . Wow!

I have recently aquired a NEC FE1250 22" CRT monitor from a buddy of mine who had this one extra.  All I can say is that there is nothing like playing UT2k4 or Farcry at 1600x1200 @ 85 Hz.  I love this thing.

Just a quick note...I got a water block for my video card last week....Koolance new GPU 180-L06. I pretty happy with it so far.......it dropped the temp on the GPU by 10c load (temp taken from the back side of the core) And only raised the CPU temp by 1c ............all in all not a bad cooling system for it only being 1/4 inch tubbing from the box to the CPU...........Inside the Hydrocool box it's all 3/8 tubbing. I did gut some of the 90 degree elbows and flow meter out of the Hydrocool box to get rid of sone of the restriction............;)

I've snagged the Logitech MX Duo.  It's a very swank cordless combo that really is very nice.  I'm a big fan of the keyboard as well as the MX700 Mouse.

I have just ordered up a ATI X800 Pro so it should be arriving sometime later this week.  Can't wait to play Farcry at 1600X1200 without any choppiness.   :)

Got the Logitech mx510. Found its a slight bit more solid. Mice feet slide better. Overall it does track better in gaming. A nice improvement.

I'm building a new external water cooling box, I've already got the pump (Danger Den D4) Rad (Dual heater core) CPU block (Polarflo) N/B block (Polarflo) Fans (Panaflo 120mm M). Tubing and rez seem to be lost somewhere. I still need to wire the box and paint the outside of the case............;)

I've picked up a BIOS Savior as well as a GB kit (2x512) OCZ PC3500 Platinum Enhanced Bandwidth RAM.  I'm working on a review of the RAM.
