Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (PC)


I have been a semi-fan of the game for quite some time occasionally popping in Call of Duty 4 to play. The game is pretty popular, for the 360 more I believe, so I think there’s quite a nice market of gamers out there to compete with.

Western Digital Caviar Green WD15EADS 1.5TB
About a year or so ago I switched from a 320GB hard drive to a 640GB hard drive. I’ve almost filled up the hard drive and only have about 640GB remaining. I’d also like to install a fresh copy of Windows 7, switch my data over from my 640GB drive, and use it as a backup drive. I would hope a 1.5TB drive lasts me another year or two.

EVGA Hydro Copper GeForce GTX 295 1792MB


My graphics card still functions for older games, but still hangs on some of the newer games. The 9800GTX was a decent card for its time and has proven efficient for the past couple years, but I think it’s almost time to move onto the 200 series GeForce cards.

Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz


I’ve had my eye on the i7’s ever since they came out, but they have all been way overpriced. The i7-920 is one of the cheaper models and probably one the best for price of performance. Unfortunately this requires me to get an entire new setup, replacing my Q6600 and XFX 680i LT.

Bugatti Veyron


Everyone wants a nice car, so why not dream for one I will never drive? The Bugatti Veyron is one of the fastest street legal cars available. While we don’t see a lot of them over here in the US, it would still be nice to own a $1.7 million car.
