I like the new choice for graphics. Something to think about: If you have money to spend in the future, and you do think SLI is a possibility, you might have to get a new power supply. Don't get me wrong, the case and power supply are wonderful (I use both) and they will work fine for your proposed ...

I do use 3 blades however. I use the Mach3 - regular. The Turbo seems to irritate quite a bit and it doesn't seem to shave any better.

Pretty soon, we'll be able to shave with one swipe on each side and one under the chin. :lol:

The Cowboys franchise always seemed to be fit for "kings" or at least people that thought they were. I think T.O. fits with the Cowboys, but not the coach. I still think Bill should have never taken the job. With K.J. gone, T.O. will pickup the attitude slack. Who knows, maybe T.O. could write anoth...

I agree with you. The only reason I would watch T.V. is for the Discovery Channel, Learning Channel, or History Channel. Cable or some dish network is not worth it for these three channels, so I don't watch T.V. either. I will admit that I do watch movies and play the occasional video game, but othe...

I'd have to agree with the fact that many people are more open "online" than they would anywhere else. I suppose it's because there is no face to face meetings and people "don't really know you."
