Default Spend my money :)

OK, so this morning, I started out with $380. I went to "Essence Computer" and picked up a set of Logitech X-540's for 110 after tax.

I have $270 left, what else should I buy? (Something for my new build, I'm selling this one soon.)

Besides donate it to me?
I don't know what you want, but that sounds like the right amount of money to buy a second monitor.

Edit: Or buy a raptor.

you should have looked there before buying it at a shop.

dont buy a raptor, for a couple of seconds off of loading times is 150$ really worth it, i highly doubt it.

I'm already getting a 250GB soon, I have the Q6600, and 2GB of the ram, I think I may buy a new mobo, and probably a case.

Isn't that what buying a high-end computer is all about?

If you need a case, then get that of course. This one is always popular.

I don't know, I would of had to get a credit card ready, and have it shipped. It was a little easier to go to the shop, but I had to carry the 30 pound box home about 1 mile
