In a way to motivate myself, I've decided that once all this work is done I'm going to build myself a new PC. That's my reward for working so hard. Basically, I've been building up my bank account and it's time to drop it on something useful.
Basically, I'm going with a sweet little dual core and SLI setup. Pretty much an AMD64 X2 4400+ and dual 7800's. Money isn't too much of a factor here, but i'm keeping things within reason. The 4400+ runs about $500 on Newegg, and I'm still looking at what kind of 7800 I want to get. It'll be sweet though, trust me.
