I'm actually hoping that I get a nice set (or at least the base) of stackable Craftsman tool chest..

Then I'll spend the rest of my life trying to fill it with the 15k of tools it'll take to fill it.




In all honesty though, I never really care if I get anything... For me it's all about family, food, and watching the niece and nephews freak out Christmas morning... LOL.

A boat. #2 is something to tow it with.

Not that I would ever get one as a present, but if I did, I would freak out like Feyd's neice & nephews

A Christmas with the family I still have, and hope I get the same next christmas. Working hard to take advantage of my dad able to afford to get my degree, ill buy my own things then. You never know when a loved one can go, cherish these holidays every chance you can.

Amen. My dad passed over 14 years ago and not a day goes by when I don't think of him.

Do tell.

I was hoping Santa (me) would get me an HD6970 and a couple more sticks of RAM. Decided not to as Santa for a whole new setup as I think I can squeeze another year of high level gaming out of my rig with just a couple upgrades.

Collin, you don't always say the smartest shit, but I have to give you a +1 here for sure.... I read this article today and it made me feel like absolute shit for being such an asshole all the time and it put life in perspective a bit, especially having a daughter myself.... Seems reminders of what life is really about are all around us.

Getting a superclocked GTX 460 to replace my 8800GTX. Also going to overclock my E8400 to 3.6ghz, so should last me another 1.5-2 years. Might throw in another GTX 460 once it hits $100 or so.

Pssh, paying for the brand name. Although their cases do look badass. If you knew how to build your own computer I would be compelled to ask you to bear my children

I wish I knew someone that could come show me how to overclock and get my cable management in order.
