Woot, my ESP just posted in my bank account! I think I'll put it toward my uber gaming rig I plan to build at years end, and the GTX 280 is about to be released! For those of you whom for some reason aren't aware of this, it's a flat rate of $300 per person. If you're working and file a tax return or are on some type of fed government income, you qualify.

I'm a dirty college student, so I didn't get one. If I did, though, I'd spend it on hookers and blow. Ah, who am I kidding... it wouldn't pay for decent hookers or decent blow. So probably just booze and pot. Yeah, thats sounds more realistic.

We have tile in our kicthen, it is such a pain in the rear. You have to mop it every couple of hours or it gets a good layer of dirt. What I would give to have cheap anoulium again:bawl:.

Possibly buy another Jeep for a project truck. I know a guy will sell a Grand Wagoneer that runs and can be drove for $300, so that would work out perfect.

Either that or buy something for one of my computers. My Mac is in need of some more Ram, and my PC is getting a new graphics card once the next series is out.

Where in PA are you??? I'm selling a 1988 Cherokee and a 1994 Grand Cherokee. Cheap too.

Anyway, if I ever get the damn thing it'll probably go toward paying off my student loans

S.T.A.L.K.E.R.Where in PA are you??? I'm selling a 1988 Cherokee and a 1994 Grand Cherokee. Cheap too.

I think i want a full size Jeep now (like the Grand Wagoneer), they are big, pretty much indestructible, and definitely stick out in a parking lot. Too bad the 360ci (5.9L) V8 in them only gets 11-14mpg at best. :(

I have a '98 Cherokee right now that i drive everyday, but parts are just too damn expensive for the thing too really do anything with it.

Well now, looks like some are stimulating more than the economy (cough, cough). Never did I think this thread would range from the illicit to a make shift want ad! I'm starting to think mine won't stretch very far if I end up going with a Nehalem CPU. It will usher in a whole new line of pricey MBs and CPU coolers, not to mention an extra stick of RAM just to get the triple channel memory working. The ironic thing is, by the time LGA1366 MBs are available, DRR3 may be the cheap part of the deal.
