OK, you can add a nice little addition to the toys:

Asus Eee Pad Transformer, I got the KB dock as well.

I'll pick it up when back in SA in 8 days time 

Can't wait for Android! Wohoooo!

What's going to rock is using the DLNA apps on it. So I can chill in my lounge, outside or where-ever using the wireless network to control my music, vids's etc showing on my PC's (both gaming and media machines). Also my amp is connected to the network with DLNA so I can use the same Pad to change the music/movies in my lounge, the same for the outside speakers (the zone 2 on the amp) or even play movies independantly as my TV is also on the network and DLNA compatible.

Hmmm, that reminds me. I must do an update of my gear and stuffs sometime as soon as I get into my apartments and out the hotels.

Intel I5 2500k @ 4,5Ghz
Corsair H70 Liquid Cooling
Gigabyte P67a-UD3-B3
8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600mhz

My old socket 775 board died this week when I tried to roll back to an older bios - so much for 'Asus Crash Free Bios'...
So I got a similar setup to this and assembled it yesterday. Same Ram and CPU just the UD4 board.

I had to go buy a PS2 keyboard because I cannot get into the bios with my Logtech G11 KB... but besides that these sandy bridge cpu's overclock like NOTHING I've ever had before. Running 5.0GHz with air cooling is just amazing.

I'm busy putting together a new HTPC as the HP Microserver just doesn't seem to want to work out properly for me.

i3 550 1156 socket
2 x 2GB 1333 Mushkin CL7
MSI mATX H55M-E23
Gigabyte 800 watt Odin GT
1x250GB Sata
2x2TB Sata
Lian-Li V354 cube chassis

All in all I think it will be fine with the onboard video/hd audio, only time will tell I guess. If not I'll get an HD5770/6770 as a GFX card.

Hehe, you are getting an "Eskom" like 800W PSU for this rig! ;D :o I guess you should be fine with a lot less (500W perhaps) which would allow the PSU to operate at an optimal efficiency, saving you money on your electricity bill.

i5 650
MSI H55M - P31
8gb DD3 ram
Ati Radeon X1550
500w PSU
3 x Sata hard drives

It does what I need  it to do although I may stretch for a decent graphics card and sound card at some point. Hoping to pick up a 23" or bigger monitor soon too.
