I think I might try to make it to one of the Texas conventions. I'm not so interested in the hardware packages, I'd just like to sit in on some of the speeches and get the free schwag. I haven't been to a trade show or tech conference in quite some time now, I think it'd be a cool experience.

Bah on the A64 bundle, but that Opteron deal looks nice. Too bad ECC ram is so damn expensive. :(

You'd be silly to pass up that $250 bundle though. Provided that you had the money for it. I dont' care because I'm not ready for my 939 upgrade yet; I'm trying to wait on dual core and the Nvidia 7 series.

Don't rub it in. I have to buy Battlefield 2, a Sega CD, and a bunch of A/V cables for game systems and my VCR/DVD/Tuner so my bedroom home theater setup will work. The fact of the matter is, BF2 will sell through, the Sega CD is a one time killer deal (Console and 3 games, $60, complete with the uber-rare spacer I need), and it's no fun playing games and movies through Chinese TV speakers. I hate TV speakers - they are the baseline for crap.

Did I mention I have to buy a new laptop, because Neomagic video chips suck balls?
