It's time to start shopping. My main PC, originally purchased back in 2004, is simply not cutting it anymore -- choking on the newest games, stuttering, locking up frequently, and generally giving signs that it's time to find an upgrade. So I'm now researching the hell out of PC hardware, looking for the latest and greatest, getting up to speed again. Dual Core this, quad-SLI video cards, 1100 watt power supplies, Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate Edition....things have clearly advanced quite a bit since I went shopping for the Hattori Hanzo box in 2004. Still, to have gotten more than five years out of the PC is not bad, I suppose.

Who makes the best gaming PCs nowadays? Alienware has always been overrated, but Hypersonic, VoodooPC and Falcon NW always got good reviews. They're just damned expensive. Maybe I should get the component listings from one of the hyper-builders and then get a local shop to build it for me. I prefer small stores anyway.

*sigh* I guess this means the home theater speaker upgrade I was looking to make soon will have to wait a while longer.......
