Birthday present to myself...?

So I've decided I should buy myself something for my birthday. Was thinking of something for my main rig http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/DoHbOyBlAzEd/saved/2pJj (not what I paid, just parts list), but I have not a clue what to get.

Any suggestions, if anything?

What are you looking to spend?

Some ideas that come to mind:

  • sleeved cabling?

  • bigger monitor?

Money really isn't a factor. No sense getting sleeved cables, 24pin and a few others are hard wired in and the modular ones are nice enough as it is. Was considering a 1440P monitor but my desk is not that big. Waiting until HD9000 series before I consider videocard upgrade.

The only viable option I see is to go all out on a custom cooling loop :P

Case has built in fan controller, lol the case is lit up enough as it is. If I had a bigger desk I would go with a 27" 1440P lol. I put thought into this and really couldn't think of anything

But ya man I don't really have any ideas... if you're waiting on new GPUs and won't go to 27" til you have a bigger desk then idk haha

Maybe just go with a bunch of alcohol and drunkenly game for a few days haha

Exactly... then you'll get drunk... come up with some amazing parts list on here... and then buy a $5,000 new computer

Finally checked my mail, seems the government sent me a $500 check for going back to school last year while I was laid off work. Not to shabby of a bday gift in itself.
