Been too long since I've updated. I dropped the OC on my processor a long time ago and haven't had a chance to work it back up with the stability I want. That's on the (long) to-do list, right after I hang curtains all over the house for the wife.

My RAID 0 failed, and WD was kind enough to replace my two 640 GB HDDs (only one was bad) with two 750 GB HDDs. They are also Caviar Blacks, with 64 MB cache, and SATA 3 as well.

I snatched up a gorgeous 27" IPS monitor from Microcenter for a great price. These are as good as the $1000+ Dell ones for about a third as much.

I upgraded my GPU from an Nvidia GTX 580 1.5 GB to a Radeon 7970 3GB because my new monitor was bottle-necked by the lack of vram.

Also got the headphones at some point, and the speakers are some of the best you can get for a PC.
If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
