What present should I buy myself?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm itching to buy myself a present! I'm trying to debate what to buy though. If anything it could be an upgrade for my sig rig. So far, I've tried eyefinity for 2 weeks with 3 dell U2211H's, didn't like it so I returned it. Tried crossfire, didn't like it (too troublesome). Was also contemplating buying an alienware m11x so whenever I go over to my relatives for meals, I can bring it with me and chill on WoW and talk to the relatives at the same time.

any suggestions?

Maybe get some water cooling? Those m11x laptops do look nice though.

I have also always wanted one of the M11x's. If you have the cash go for it.

Not true at all. If you want decent FPS you need something with a dedicated GPU.

My cpu is already watercooled with my gtx580 top arriving in a week+.

Yea, the m11x looks pretty sweet, but I'm racking my head whether or not I'll actually use it properly, or will it just be another impulse buy I might regret.

I really wish we had the range of choice in America, in Singapore it sucks, can't even buy myself a Klipsch Promedia 2.1 without paying like 300+ on shipping.

Any other suggestions will be great

You could invest in some high end speakers for your rig?

Yea, I'm currently using the razer blackwidow, I know in comparison it's not a REAL mechanical keyboard, but it's gotten me to love the tactile response from it. I believe it's blue-switches as well.

As for headsets, I tend not to use them, rather speakers and an isolated mic, has work for me for a while now.

I would invest in some speakers, but I don't have enough desk space and or places to mount it near. And also, I can't play my music THAT loud since I live with my grandmother currently and I know she won't appreciate loud loud music. Which is why I wanted the klipsch promedia 2.1 since it was the best speakers at that price-point.

But shouldn't a new m11x be coming out soon?
