 New Hardware
So with my 8800GT dead I bought myself a used Radeon 5770. I'm pretty pleased with it.

Sorry about the dirty case.

Oh, and I also picked this up last Friday.

No prob. You should see inside my case. And I clean it regularly. Where the hell does dust come from???
Anyways those GPUs do look nice. Too bad I cant make one work. ;)
And I will refrain from any comments on the iphone just to keep the peace.

Funny, I just tossed my Linux install on my quadcore i7 in favor OS X so I can have a full time hackintosh for my audio needs and ended up swapping in a Radeon 5770 into my tower to get my display running. I'm looking for one with dual DVI though. My monitors really don't like VGA, and it messes with me moving my eyes from the one on DVI to the one on VGA looking all fuzzy and stuff. yuk
