TR Forum Tidings: What would you buy with $80?

— 5:01 PM on February 20, 2007

Many gerbils post in our forums to ask whether a certain piece of hardware (or a proposed build) is worth the money. Gerbil newcomer 41.60l23 has taken an inverse approach and posted a thread in our General Hardware forum to ask what he should get for $80. His initial impulse was to get one of Creative's X-Fi sound cards, but he eventually settled on some 5.1 headphones and an Athlon 64 3200+ to help his folding. Meanwhile, other members suggested a Scythe Ninja processor cooler, a better mouse and keyboard, an Auzentech sound card, and simply investing the money. What about you? If you had $80 to spend right now, what piece (or pieces) of hardware would you get and why?
