    Stopping in! *waves*

    Wow, it's been a while since my last log in here... sometime back in March I believe? Since that time I've...

    1. gotten married (on April 1st no less! It was her idea, she has an odd sense of humor)

    2. Moved 25 miles

    3. Gone on a honeymoon (7 day Caribean cruise. OMG was it nice)


    I'm just now getting back into the normal flow of life, and have started playing some D2 again. I'm thinking about what new character build to do now... I've also been playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion quite a bit, but I always seem to come back to D2 at some point. It's like digital crack.

    I'm also building a new computer. Been buying parts slowly, mostly as I see really good sales on Newegg. It's gonna be a pretty nice machine once it's done! So far I have the following parts...

    Thermaltake Armor + MX case
    OCZ GameXtreme 700w PSU
    2GB (1x2) Kingston HyperX DDR21066 (PC8500) RAM
    Seagate Barracuda 250GB SATA HD
    EVGA 750i FTW motherboard

    Parts to purchase yet (subject to change of course)...

    Intel Q6600 Core 2 Quad CPU
    EVGA GeForec 8800GTS 512MB
    Acrtic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro
    whatever DVD burner is on sale
    possibly a 150GB Raptor HD (10K RPM)

    I'm planning on going with Vista Ultimate right now... probably install the x86 (32 bit) version at first, and then maybe later give the x64 (64 bit) version a shake. I'll probably set it up dual-boot with XP Pro.
    The next gen video cards are due out within the next month or so, which means the prices on the current card will drop, and within a few months I should be able to pick up a second 8800GTS for some sweet SLI action. :thumbup:

    No matter what happens, this new build is going to SMOKE my current machine, which I built a few years ago!


    Anyway... just thought I'd stop in and give a "howdy". :wave:

    Howdy! :wave:

    Congratulations on your marriage! Bit of a strange sense of humour your missus has by the sounds of it :)
