All my PC parts are on order...

Everything is on order for my new PC and should be here in 2-3 days. I received a great deal on the video card!

MWave.com had a little save $25 on your next purchase of $50 or more deal going on. So I bought a $1.49 cable and then bought the video card next to save $25. Shipping was about $4 more than NewEgg, but that is still $19.50 saved... not to mention NewEgg was Zero Balance on the video card I wanted. Oh and MWave was $5 cheaper initially on the card.

Now I'm so fricking nervous about getting the stuff... not so sure about MWave shipping, but we'll see. NewEgg I'm sure will get the stuff here.

Then it just leaves me to screw it up once the stuff is here.

I probably should ugprade my system some day...

I'm still running a Radeon 9700 Pro graphics card (bought new, when it was the best card available and ATI was winning the race)

It does okay with things like World of Warcraft and Civilization 4, at 1280x1024...

If I were to go up to a 1600x1200 display I'd need to get a new graphics card... which would PCI express meaning I'd need a new motherboard, new CPU, RAM... might as well get some dual RAID0 10RPM SATA drives ;)

Anyways, not in the mood to spend the money right now... perhaps in about a year.

I've been fiddling the idea around forever now and did my research and finally went through with the purchase. About $1800 total so not too bad :)
