Default What to do with todays Birthday Money?

As you can see the title says it all. I decided to get a new GPU and a new MP3/PMP player but there's too many choices. No Apple this time as I did my research.
But, to keep in the spirit of the 4th, here's something to try for some fireworks:

Don't blame me if you lose a finger or a hand from button batteries.

(If the title didn't give it away, then my B-day is the 4th for you slow people)

Sorry for the really long post, but it gets to the point.

I hopefully am going to get a new HD 4780! Newegg has VERY few in stock right now, Hope no ones buys tomorrow.

But the main reason I am posting this is because I am having very bad luck looking for a new MP3 player. My 2Gb nano is quite full(11Mb's left) and I need something new.

I wanted a PMP for a while so I started searching and came up with the Archos 605 Wifi. Now It's REALLY NICE for about $250(30GB), but to watch movies in different formats, use the internet, and listain to AC3 music files; you have to add 50 bucks for "extra codecs" that come standard with other PMPs. It also has quite bad battery life. Since I might not get enough money, I started looking for cheaper stuff and I found the Cowon D2. I love it, its nice and lil, BUT too little. With a 2.5 inch screen and the choices of a 2,4,8, or 16 GB flash memory, and the ability to add a SDHC card(32GB is max so far) I love it. It has a touch screen, radio, great battery life, and some other things but NO WIFI. The screen resolution is only 320x240(Compared to the Archos' 800x480).

Here are two links:

Now, I don't know what one too pick. And I don't know if there is anything else out there that is a better deal.

If you know of any PMP under $250 with:
Touch screen
Flash memory with SDHC expansion port
30GB or more Hard drive
And a screen bigger than 2.5 inches
Please tell me about it

Again, if you read through this long post thank you and please post.

Thank You VERY Much, And have a happy 4th of July
